In this paper, a finite control set Model Predictive Control (MPC) for grid-tie quasi-Z-Source (qZS) based multilevel inverter is proposed. The proposed Power Conditioning System (PCS) consists of a single-phase 2-cell Cascaded H-Bridge (CHB) inverter where each module is fed by a qZS network. The aim of the proposed control technique is to achieve grid-tie current injection, low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) current, unity power factor, while balancing DC-link voltage for all qZS-CHB inverter modules. The feasibility of this strategy is validated by simulation using Matlab/Simulink environment.
