We consider the design procedure for a single-phase PWM DC-AC inverter using a particle swarm optimization algorithm. The switching operation is the most important component of the single-phase PWM DC-AC inverter. The PSO algorithm optimizes the switching angle effectively. The design procedure of the switching angle evaluates total harmonic distortion and the effective value of output. The proposed evaluation function restricts the scope to evaluating harmonic components. Based on numerical simulation results, we confirmed that the performance of the proposed design procedure was improved compared to the conventional sinusoidal PWM procedure. We develop an implementation circuit for our PWM DCAC inverter. By using the implemented circuit, we confirmed that results for implementation circuits are consistent with results for numerical simulations, indicating that the proposed algorithm exhibits better performance than the conventional sinusoidal PWM DC-AC inverter.
