The control strategy of the power converter plays a crucial role in ensuring reliable and efficient operation of renewable based distributed generation (DG) systems. In most applications, proportional-integral (PI) based cascaded control structures have been used to control current, voltage, etc. To eliminate the drawbacks of the cascaded control structure and difficulties of the modulation techniques, this chapter examines the model predictive control (MPC) technique for impedance source - Z-source (ZS) and quasi-Z-source (qZS) - three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase inverters. Then, it presents ZS/qZS three-phase three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase (five-phase) inverter topologies, along with a description of the topology, model, and switching schemes for control. After that, the MPC algorithm for ZS/qZS three-phase, three-leg, four-leg, and multiphase (five-phase) inverters are presented. Finally, to prove the addressed MPC strategy, a performance investigation has been carried out with qZS four-leg inverter and simulation results are presented to demonstrate the capabilities of the MPC.
