Problem statement: This study concerns with designing of Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) techniques and analyzing of their waveforms to initiate a comparative numerical study. Approach: This study enables the people interesting in developing the motional control algorithms of adjustable DC drive schemes (e.g., DC-DC converters). Results: LabView software was used as a real-talk simulation environment to design and analyze of the studied cases, such that: single pulse width modulation, multiple pulse width modulation and sinusoidal pulse width modulation. Full sub-VI schemes with labview had been designed to introduce for future studies. Conclusion: Analytical and numerical results have been also provided at the end of this study.
