A novel space vector modulation (SVM) technique for a three-level five-phase inverter is described based on an optimized five vectors concept. The concept utilizes a novel vector minimization technique that reduces the number of vectors in the <i>d</i><sub>1</sub>-<i>q</i><sub>1</sub> vector space by identifying candidate vectors in each of the ten sectors(More)
A novel technique that improves the low-speed performance of a five-phase induction machine (IM) driven by a two-level inverter using the classic direct torque control (DTC) technique is presented. Demagnetization of the stator flux is investigated when the IM runs at lower speeds, and a solution is provided to overcome this phenomenon. The proposed(More)
