Three-Level Five-Phase Space Vector PWM Inverter for a Two Five-Phase Series Connected Induction Machine Drive
Abstract: This paper describes the decoupled torque and flux control of a two series connected five-phase Induction Machine (IM) drive that is supplied by a three-level five phase SVPWM inverter, using a well known phase transposition in the series connection. At the first, the decoupled torque and flux controller is developed based on variable-structure control (VSC). Then, a sliding-mode (SM) flux observer in employed to estimate the stator flux; that uses a two reference frames which result in eliminating the speed adaptation. Moreover simple control strategy is introduced for three-level SVPWM voltage source inverter (VSI) that can be easily implemented in practice for a two-series five phase IM drive. Finally, the effectiveness and capability of the proposed control method is verified by computer simulation.
