Abstract: This paper presents switched model and its performance of a single phase DC/AC ideal half-bridge two-level inverter. The principle of operation of this inverter is described and the main theoretical waveforms are presented, as well as the simulation results. The main expressions for the design of the inverter are also presented. This inverter presents the following advantages of lossless inverter; the THD at the load is also preferably very less. The load current is divided amongst the switches, therefore reducing the conduction losses. In light of its characteristics, we believe that it is appropriate for industrial applications.
