As the amount of decentralized generation is continuously increasing the control and maintaining of the grid stability becomes more complex. This is caused by the change of production capacities from the high voltage area into the distribution network. In order to ensure the stability of future smart grids a new 4-leg 4-wire inverter as a part of a power electronic regulator is introduced. The features of the 4-leg 4-wire topology in comparison to the 3-leg 4-wire topology and advantages of a multilevel inverter for harmonic compensation are shown. In combination with a powerful FPGA based controller complex algorithms for Space Vector Modulation and for control can be implemented. Finally the actual status of the hardware development including the technical data of the inverter is shown.
