A modulation-based method for generating pulse waveforms with selective harmonic elimination is proposed. Harmonic elimination, traditionally digital, is shown to be achievable by comparison of a sine wave with modified triangle carrier. The method can be used to calculate easily and quickly the desired waveform without solution of coupled transcendental equations.
