Modeling and Simulation of a Boost DC/AC Inverter fed Induction Motor Drive

Single-stage three-phase boost dc/ac inverters can provide sinusoidal ac output voltages which arc greater than input dc voltage without needing an intermediate dc voltage boost stage. Such a topology is cost-effective due to reduced switch count and it is suitable for compact design These unique features of this type of inverter makes it a suitable choice in many applications such as uninterruptible power supplies, variable speed ac drives, and some distributed power generation schemes. This paper aims to investigate the performance of the inverter in variable-speed control of an induction motor through the simulation models. The simulation results obtained from a three-phase boost dc/ac inverter controlled induction motor drive system are obtained from mathematical models and presented in this paper.

Analysis and Characterization of DC Bus Ripple Current of Two-Level Inverters Using The Equivalent Centered Harmonic Approach
Ayhan, Ufuk; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2011-09-22)
The dc bus PWM ripple current of three-phase two-level voltage source inverters is a function of the PWM method, the load current magnitude, power factor angle, and the modulation index. Thus, the ripple current characteristics are highly involved and difficult to understand. Using the double Fourier integral approach, this paper investigates the ripple current characteristics thoroughly for a wide range of operating conditions and PWM methods. Then, the equivalent harmonic approach is used to lump the ripp...

The flyback transformer is a crucial part of the flyback converter, which has the highest portion of total power losses for most applications. Accurately prediction of the power losses due to flyback transformer early in the design stage provides an advantage about revealing reliable prototypes.

A Proposal for Improving Efficiency of Inverter Driven Electrical Motors
Ertan, Hulusi Bülent (2011-07-28)
Conventional inverter output has PWM output. This pulsed output waveform reduces insulation life time, contributes to quick degradation of the bearings and also is often source of acoustic noise. Furthermore, losses of PWM inverter-driven motors increase. In this paper a novel topology is proposed which is capable of generating a sinusoidal waveform, with low harmonic distortion. If the proposed method is used for driving motors, motor efficiency increases due to reduced losses and lifetime of the motor may...

Güvengir, Umut; Ermiş, Muammer; Çadırcı, Işık; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2014)
In this thesis, online selective harmonic elimination method (SHEM) has been applied to a voltage source converter (VSC) based grid-connected three-phase two-level inverter with variable DC link input voltage eliminating 5th, 7th, 11th, 13th, 17th, and 19th harmonics in the output voltage. The switching angles of SHEM are given by a set of nonlinear transcendental equations. Particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is used for the solution of this equation set, and this algorithm is implemented in the fi...
