Abstract:   (1006 Views)
This article discusses the operating principle and simulation of closed loop control of a three phase induction motor (IM) powered by five level diode clamped multilevel inverter (DCMLI) using direct torque control (DTC) technique. The main purpose of this article is to regulate the torque and speed of an IM and to decrease total harmonic distortion (THD). In this article, a five-level inverter's direct modulation approach with the dc link voltage self-balancing is presented. To reduce capacitor voltage variation, the redundancies of various switch topologies for the creation of intermediate voltages are also used. The use of LC filter results in lower output voltage and current distortion. A multicarrier PWM control technique is used for DCMLI to provide high quality sinusoidal output voltage with decreased harmonics. This can be obtained by employing Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation (SPWM) method for speed and torque control. This demonstrates that the recommended method of controlling the motor's speed and torque is effective. The simulation result reveals that DTC for the five-level inverter fed IM drive gives a rapid dynamic response, lower voltage and current THDs, and much less flux and torque distortion. The simulation is carried out in MATLAB Simulink (R2014).
