The naval vessels of the future will require lighter, more compact, and more versatile power electronics systems. With the advent of the DC Zonal Electrical Distribution System, more innovative approaches to the conversion of the dc bus power to ac power for motor drives will enhance the efficiency and warfighting capability of tomorrow's ships. This thesis explores the concept of a hybrid dc-ac power converter that combines a hysteresis controlled inverter with a six-step bulk inverter. A six-step bulk inverter is built from discrete components and tested in simulation and hardware. The two inverters are connected in parallel to provide a high-fidelity current source for a three-phase load. The addition of the hysteresis inverter to the bulk inverter adds a closed current loop for more robust control and improves the quality of the output load current.
