CHB converter voltages feature seven-level waveforms with an equivalent

switching frequency of 9 kHz. In practical applications with a

higher number of bridges per phase, a lower carrier frequency

can be used to achieve similar harmonic performance. A limi-

tation of the experimental implementation is that the converter

can only track the MPP under nominal conditions, because vdc

is kept constant during the operation and dc-dc converters are

not included in the setup. When the irradiance changes, the

converter cannot track the MPP of the new condition, because

vdc remains constant. However, this does not affect the results

and conclusions from the experiment as there still exists an

unbalanced power generation between the three phases of the

converter i.e. it is only the magnitude of that imbalance which
