I don't see what's wrong with Don's approch for AC inverters of performences
like the one here.
If I've correctly understood the paper after a breaf reading, there are few
switching edges (from fig 1) 6x4 = 24 pulses over a full sinus cycle. Much
less than a 20-100kHz classic PWM approach. On the contrary, I would think
that magic sin waves is much more favourable in this regard.
Also for the "high freq" noise, the first major harmonics are the 23th and
25th, so it would be easy to build a fixed low pass filter that have it's
corner frequency between 1) the highest fundamental freq (80Hz in this case)
and 2) the 23th harmonic of the lowest freq (30x23 = 690Hz) there's plenty
of room in this window.
In fact, what I find less practical in this approach is the size of the low
pass filter elements, given the low corner frequency and maybe the amplitude
of the obtained fundamental, but I'm not clear on this point having just
thought a few seconds to it.
