ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The multicell inverter, being a widely used multilevel converter, has received much attention in recent years due to problems associated with cell capacitor voltage. In this dissertation we study the balancing problem with a focus on steady-state unbalance. This is achieved by systematic and mathematically rigorous study of the natural balancing mechanisms of the three-phase 2-cell and 3-cell multicell converter, undertaken by using dynamic modelling of the multicell converter, Bennet’s geometric model, steady-state and time constant analysis. Space vector analysis is also performed for the three-phase 2-cell multicell converter. The theory is verified by comparing theoretical results with simulation results

AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die multisel omkeerder as algemeen-gebruikte meervlakkige omsetter het die afgelope jare groot belangstelling gewek op grond van die probleme wat met selkapasitor stroomspanning geassosieer word. In hierdie proefskrif word die balanseringsprobleem met die klem op die ewewigswanbalans bestudeer. Dit is verrig deur ’n sistematiese en streng wiskundige studie van die natuurlike balanseringsmeganismes van die drie-fase 2-sel en 3- sel multisel omsetter te maak. Dit is gedoen deur die gebruik van dinamiese modellering van die multisel omsetter, Bennet se geometriese model, ewewigtoestand tydkonstante analises, en ruimtevektoranalise is vir die drie-fase 2-sel multisel omsetter gedoen. Die teorie word bevestig deur die teoretiese resultate met die simuleringsresultate te vergelyk
