The other advantages of the multilevel inverter includes low distortion, high power quality, minimum peak inverse voltage (PIV), staircase output voltage, low dv/dt stress, smaller common mode voltage and minimum switching losses [4-5].
The inverse voltage across diode [D.sub.2] ([V.sub.D2inv]), the power dissipation in the diode [D.sub.2] ([P.sub.D2]), and the inverse voltage across the series connection of the diodes [D.sub.3] and [D.sub.4] ([V.sub.D3D4inv]), are shown in Fig.
The rf voltage source A represents the SUS internal rf voltage attenuator, which reduces the applied rf voltage to accommodate the pack inverse voltage limit of rectifier diode S.
Peak inverse voltage is rated at 3000V, with a low forward voltage drop and an average forward current of 250 mA.
