Modulation strategies for direct-link drive for open-end winding AC machines

Switching common-mode voltages generated by conventional pulse-width modulated inverters are known to cause bearing currents in ac machines. These undesirable currents may result in bearing damage. A direct-link drive for open-end winding ac machines has recently been proposed. Some advantages of the drive include: 1) common-mode voltage suppression, 2) no… (More)
