Abstract: This artefact deals with review and the comparative assessment of three different closed loop control approaches for cascaded H-bridge multilevel inverter (CHBMLI) fed 3 Φ induction motor. The sustainable solar energy has been efficiently used as input of the proposed MLI. The 12 IGBT switches have been used to achieve 13 levels for 1 Φ so 36 IGBT switches are utilised for 3 Φ inverter. The ANFIS, PID and fuzzy intelligent controllers are employed with feedback signals to get the optimum solution. The analysis of 13-level CHBMLI with ANFIS, fuzzy and PID controllers are designed. The performances are measured by using an open loop and closed loop environment with two compassionate speeds. The performances are % of THD, steady state error, settling time and peak time is measured and compared by using MATLAB-Simulink.

Keywords: ANFIS controller; fuzzy controller; PID controller; multilevel inverter.
