The paper presents the possibility of the output voltage control of an OVT inverter. The idea of the OVT inverter construction is based on the orthogonal space vectors theory. The OVT inverter is built of two components two-level three-phase inverters: the main inverter (MI) and the auxiliary one (AI). The output voltage of the OVT inverter takes the shape of a stepped voltage analogous to the voltage generated by multilevel inverters. The paper demonstrates possible control methods of the output voltage frequency and amplitude. The results obtained during simulation studies prove that the output voltage essential parameters may be a function of the DC voltage and the control circuitry permits easy defining a selection of voltage/frequency characteristics.
