Nowadays the most used multilevel topology for variable-speed wind turbines (WTs) is the a back-to back three-level NPC (Neutral Point Clamped) VSCs (voltage source converter). One of the most critical elements in the design of this type of converters is the DC-bus capacitors. The calculus of these depends on the same factors that the same two-levels topology, and, moreover it is function of a low...
