Electronic engineer entrepreneur, self-taught, responsible, creative and goal-oriented. He received his BSc. degree in electronic engineering. He is candidate to earn his MSc. in control engineering at the university of Ibague, Colombia, where he is currently a professor in the faculty of engineering. This MSc. program in control engineering has been created as a result of a fruitful academic cooperation between the university of ibaguè, the Catholic University of Leuven “KULeuven” and the University of ghent UGent “UGent” in Belgium.
He worked for a company called “Ideas Disruptivas” in Mexico, where as a project manager he helped develop the first Mexican 3D printer, with a clear educational purpose. The most outstanding project I have worked for, is called “pretty hand”, where a mechanical-electronic hand was designed for people needing hand prosthesis; it was a low-cost social project. He is currently chair of IEEE student branch chapter and chair industrial application society at the university of Ibague. His current research topics include power electronics, robustness and advanced control, renewable energy systems, where he has written several papers. He is fond of robotic systems.

This paper introduces a method to enforce balanced power distribution between the stages of a single-phase transformer-based cascaded multilevel inverter using the new asymmetric ratio 6:7:8:9 between stages. Since the inverter is fed by a single DC source, asymmetry is enforced by means of the transformer turns ratio providing multiple redundant switching patterns to synthesize an output signal of until 35 levels. As it is developed in the paper, optimum switching patterns for the proposed ratio allow reducing typical power unbalance produced by commonly used ratios in four stage multilevel inverters (1:2:4:8 and 1:3:9:27). The proposed method consists on determining off-line the best switching patterns for minimizing deviation error, and then, storing them as lock-up tables in the digital device controlling the inverter. By permanently reproducing the selected switching patterns, balanced power distribution is achieved. A closed-loop control approach to regulate the RMS value of the output voltage compatible with the proposed method is also developed. The experimental results using a laboratory prototype are presented validating the entire approach.
