This paper presents feasible performance of digitally-controlled three-level three-phase voltage source soft switching inverter with two Auxiliary Resonant DC link snubbers which can operate under a condition of Zero Voltage Switching (ZVS). The operating principle of this inverter topology is suitable for high power energy storage utilization system is discussed as compared with two-level soft switching inverter. The system effectiveness of new inverter treated here are proved on the basis of the experimental results.
