In this paper, a new topology for boost Z-source inverterbased on switched-inductor cell is proposed. The operating modes of the proposed inverter are analyzed and also a suitable control method to generate the trigger signals of the inverter is presented. Having a common earth between the input source and inverter and capability to generate a higher voltage gain by using lower amounts of the duty cycles are some advantages of the proposed Z-source inverter. Comparison of the proposed inverter with conventional Z-source inverters is presented from different points of the view. Finally, the accuracy performance of the proposed inverter is reconfirmed through the simulation results in EMTDC/PSCAD software program.
