Sensitive loads cannot tolerate voltage sags and swells in power distribution networks and lots of problems are engendered for them. Therefore, dif­f­e­­rent instruments are pla­nn­ed to compensate volt­a­ge swells and sags. Between them dynamic voltage restorer (DVR) has found special import­a­n­c­e, because it operates better than others for this purpose and restores voltage to its initial value conveniently. A DVR is a power-electronic controller that can protect sensitive loads from disturbances in the supply system. The DVR is installed in series to the network. In this paper 9 level cascaded inverters with cas­ca­d­ed transfor­m­e­r­s are used in DVR internal circuit, but the difference in magnetic flux in cascading transformers has adverse effects on the plan. Therefore, a new switching pattern is used
