A new multilevel inverter with less no of power switches is proposed. This is based on cascaded H-bridge topology. The design and analysis of 31-level reduced switch inverter with different modes of operation are presented in this paper. The proposed inverter is asymmetric in nature and it uses unequal DC voltage sources. PD-PWM modulation technique has been used here to get proper switching. The proposed idea has been validated through simulation and the received results provides better efficiency, less low order harmonics and less switching losses.
