Abstract

This paper proposes a space-vector modulation (SVM) algorithm for a five-phase open-end winding motor drive system, fed by a dual nonsquare matrix converter (MC). The input to each of the MCs (MC-1 and MC-2) is a three-phase utility grid, and the output is a five-phase with variable voltage, variable frequency capability. The major contribution of this paper is the elimination of the detrimental common-mode voltage (CMV) that appears across the motor winding. In addition, the proposed SVM allows for a unity power factor at the input side, while boosting the output phase voltage by up to 150% of input. This paper presents a comprehensive analysis, to obtain the expression for the SVM modulating signals that are used to generate the switching pulses for the MC. To verify the idea, a modular, reconfigurable 5-kW MC prototype, feeding a five-phase induction motor is built. The control algorithm is implemented on a dSPACE-1006 platform. The test shows that the CMV is successfully eliminated from the motor winding. Other results (i.e., current and voltage waveforms) are also found to be in very close agreement with the theoretical prediction and MATLAB simulation.
