Abstract

Multiphase induction machines are used extensively in low and medium voltage (MV) drives. In MV drives, power switches have a limitation associated with switching frequency. This paper is a comparative study of the eleven-phase induction machine's performance when used as a prototype and fed sinusoidal pulse-width-modulation (SPWM) with a low switching frequency, selective harmonic elimination (SHE), and single pulse modulation (SPM) techniques. The comparison depends on voltage/frequency controls for the same phase of voltage applied on the machine terminals for all previous techniques. The comparative study covers torque ripple, stator and harmonic currents, and motor efficiency.
