Differential evolution (DE) algorithm has been applied as a powerful tool to find optimum switching angles for selective harmonic elimination pulse width modulation (SHEPWM) inverters. However, the DE’s performace is very dependent on its control parameters. Conventional DE generally uses either trial and error mechanism or tuning technique to determine appropriate values of the control paramaters. The disadvantage of this process is that it is very time comsuming. In this paper, an adaptive control parameter is proposed in order to speed up the DE algorithm in optimizing SHEPWM switching angles precisely. The proposed adaptive control parameter is proven to enhance the convergence process of the DE algorithm without requiring initial guesses. The results for both negative and positive modulation index (M) also indicate that the proposed adaptive DE is superior to the conventional DE in generating SHEPWM switching patterns
