Recently, nine-switch inverter (NSI) has been presented as a dual-output inverter with constant frequency (CF) or different frequency (DF) operation modes. However, the CF mode is more interesting because of its lower switching device rating. This study proposes a new space-vector modulation (SVM) method for the NSI that supports both the CF and DF modes, whereas conventional SVM of NSI can be used only in the DF mode. The proposed SVM can be easily implemented based on the conventional six-switch inverter SVM modules. The performance of the proposed SVM is verified by the simulation and experimental results.
