Power quality of dual two-level inverter fed open end winding induction motor

Hayder Ali, Hanan Mikhael D. Habbi


This paper presents the minimization  of the total harmonic distortion (THD)  of the current signal for open-end winding induction motor by using dual two-level inverter. In order to obtain a good value of THD, the space vector PWM has been used for switching the dual two-level inverter to  improve the output voltage quality, gets a low common mode voltage,  reduce the execution time, and to save the memory capacity. All simulation results are obtained using Matlab /Simulink.
