Modular structured multilevel inverter is very attractive in high voltage and high power applications. This inverter has a few advantages. First, by using a multilevel structure, the stress on each switching device can be reduced MMC can handle higher voltage without using an expensive and bulky step-up transformer in various application. This paper offers a performance comparison of various multicarrier continuous and discontinuous pulse width modulations (PWM) Techniques for the control of the modular multilevel converter (MMC). Selection of the carrier frequency and the multi-carrier PWM method is an important design question for the MMC topology. The paper makes an effort to apply some continuous and discontinuous modulating of MMC this comprehensive simulation has been done in MATLAB.
