Renewable Sources are the future of electrical energy in coming decades. Power electronics converter will play a crucial role to bridge the gap between uncertainty of renewable sources & increasing load requirements. Two level inverters are used by industries as power electronic converter to �ll this gap. As load side requirement is for good power quality & a huge amount of power now a days, Multi-level inverters are better option due to less harmonics, less voltage stress & better reliability. Due to these advantages, these converters are preferred for high power application. With all these advantages, it has some challenges like energy balancing, fault tolerant capabilities etc. The objective of this thesis is improve the energy balancing between sources in multi-level inverter topologies having more than one sources. For energy balancing between sources, this thesis proposed a mathematical analysis for distribution of panels and power backup batteries according to their load share. This analysis of energy associated with voltage level is valid for any multi-level inverter topology having more than one source. This analysis is validated for a case study based on n-Level NPC inverter. Energy associated with each source is calculated for n-Level NPC inverter. This energy association with each source is proved through simulation and experimental results for �ve-level NPC inverter. In addition , zero sequence voltage injection method is used to get better performance during fault condition in multi phase inverter in this thesis. For multi phase inverter, zero sequence injected PWM is proposed for balanced load supply during fault condition. Simulation is presented for 3-phase with fault in one phase & for 5 phase with fault in one phase, two phase. v
