Abstract: This paper demonstrates the advantages of an improved Z‐Source inverter topology on basis of two major factors that is capacitor voltage stress and inrush current in comparison with the basic topology. The control strategy used is exactly same for both these approaches. Also results obtained are compared with the help of detailed simulation which depicts that the inrush current and capacitor voltage stress has been greatly reduced in the improved scheme. Analysis and simulation results have been compared using MATLAB environment.
