Voltage synthesis using virtual quadrature sources may be provided. First, a quadrature wave form may be created. The quadrature wave form may have the same frequency as an input voltage and may be ninety degrees out of phase with the input voltage. Next, a harmonic wave form may be created. The harmonic wave form may be based upon an even harmonic of the input voltage and may comprise a triplen wave form. Then, the quadrature wave form and the harmonic wave form may be added to create a resultant wave form. The resultant wave form may be contained within an envelope defined by the input voltage. Next, duty cycle control may be applied to the resultant wave form to create an output voltage. The duty cycle control may be applied without using an energy storage device.
