Abstract -Structure electrical converter is one among the foremost recent and fashionable variety of electrical converter founds its applications within the system supported renewable energy. This paper describes a brand new Single-phase seven level electrical converter topology for star electrical phenomenon (PV) system employing a carrier based mostly PWM management theme. This new topology has reduced variety of switches for associate raised variety of levels in comparison to standard seven-level structure electrical converter. Here CPWM shift theme is employed to manage the switches during this structure electrical converter and this electrical converter is fed from a star PV. during this planned topology, six power electronic switches square measure used for a seven-level electrical converter. By victimization this electrical converter topology, the harmonics is reduced and potency is increased considerably. Simulation work is completed victimization the MATLAB/SIMULINK computer code that validates the planned methodology and eventually Total Harmonic Distortion is analyzed.
