The emerging active-neutral-point-clamped (ANPC) inverters with voltage-boosting capability are attractive for their low dc-link
voltage requirement. These low voltage requirements enable a single-stage dc-ac power conversion, which improves the overall
efficiency, reliability, and power density of the system. A high voltage gain of 1.5 was demonstrated in recent boost type ANPC
topology 17; however, it was achieved at the expense of high voltage stress on some of its switching devices. This brief proposes an
improved topology with reduced voltage stress and a lower number of components while retaining the merits of high voltage gain.
The proposed topology is a hybrid of a T-type inverter and an H-bridge, which require only one floating capacitor and one less
power switch than the aforementioned topology. One floating capacitor with self-voltage balancing capability is integrated to
generate 7 output voltage levels. The proposed topology is analyzed and compared with recent boost ANPC topologies. Experimental
results are presented for validation.
