Single-stage grid-connected PV inverters with a transformerless (TL) concept have been a hot spot research topic in both the academia and industry in the latest years. Dynamic voltage boosting feature through the adjustment of de duty cycle, reduced value of the current and voltage stress across the switches, common-ground (CG)-based circuit architecture and capability of larger number of output voltage levels generation can make these types of inverters an attractive option for an efficient and compact design. In this paper, a novel seven-level (7L)-CG-based TL inverter is proposed, which possesses all the above-mentioned features for a compact design. The working principle and modulation strategy are discussed. Some simulation results are presented to attest a proper performance of the converter.
