A comparative study of few z-source inverter topologieswith control methods are compared and presented in this paper. Z-source inverter uses shoot-through state which boosts input voltage, improves reliability of converter. This is useful in some applications like electrical drives, power generation technologies such as fuel cells, solar photovoltaic cells, wind turbines and commercial application like hybrid electric vehicles, etc. The ZSI has few drawbacks like decrease in efficiency, unidirectional power flow, light-load operation, higher inrush current during starting. To overcome these limitationsvarious modifications have been suggested by researchers in the basic topology of ZSI. Acomparative study of these topologies with simulation results is presented in this paper.
