It has been shown recently that it is possible to connect in series the stator windings of multi-phase machines in such a way that all the machines in the group can be controlled independently using field orientation principles, although the complete multi-motor drive system is supplied from a single voltage source inverter (VSI). This paper deals with one particular case, a series-connected two-motor six-phase drive system. Two configurations are tested experimentally. Both include a… CONTINUE READING
