In this thesis, field oriented control of permanent magnet synchronous motors using three-level neutral-point-clamped inverter is studied. Permanent magnet synchronous motors are used in high performance drive applications. In this study, the permanent magnet synchronous motor is fed by three-level neutral-point-clamped inverter. For three-level neutral-point-clamped inverter different space vector modulation algorithms, which are reported in literature, are analyzed and compared via computer simulations. The voltage balance on dc-link capacitors is also analyzed and a software control method is implemented in conjunction with the space vector PWM modulation, utilized. Nonlinear effects such as dead-time, semiconductor voltage drop and delays in gate drive circuitries also present in neutral-point-clamped inverter. The effects of these nonlinearities are studied and a compensation method for these nonlinear effects is proposed. The theoretical results are supported with computer simulations and verified with experimental results.
