This paper presents the simulation of three-level active diode clamped multilevel inverter powered by PV. Modeling of PV and maximum power point tracking employing incremental conductance algorithm is carried out in MATLAB/SIMULINK.A double carrier pulse width modulation using inverted sine is investigated for the proposed multilevel inverter to improve the spectral quality of the output voltage. Moreover, a variable frequency carrier is employed to enhance the performance of the proposed inverter and the results are verified.
