In this chapter, not only single-phase inverters in their voltage-, current-, and impedance-source alternatives but also the three-phase inverters in their voltage- and current-source configurations will be reviewed. The multilevel configurations are also described. Specifically, the topologies, the modulating techniques, and the control aspects oriented to standard applications are analyzed. The inverters are required in many applications, like adjustable speed drives (ASDs), uninterruptible power supplies, static var compensators, active power filters, flexible ac transmission systems, ...
