3 Phase VSC SPWM (Triple-n harmonics)

  1. Dec 8, 2012 #1
    Why is it that we accept triple-n harmonics in the output voltage spectrum of VSCs?

    Assume we are using SPWM where the frequency modulation index is selected to be a large odd integer multiple of 3.

    Thanks again!

    Sorry I don't understand the acronyms.

    In case this is three-phase current, triple-n harmonics cancel out naturally.

    Sorry about the acronyms, I thought they were commonly used.

    VSC = Voltage Source Converter

    SPWM = Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation

    Can you explain further how the triple-n harmonics cancel out naturally? And by "triple-n" do they just mean the harmonics that are integer multiple of 3?
