Direct Torque Control Of Induction Motor Using Two-Level Inverter

The direct torque control strategy of squirrel-cage induction motor using two-level inverter is presented. The strategy used for controlling the torque of induction motor includes the change in applied voltage to the squirrel-cage induction motor .The variable voltage is provided with the help of look up table to the inverter. It is observed that the torque ripples are much in two-level inverter. This is because of the high dv/dt ratio of the output voltage of inverter. The current ripple produces torque ripples in steady state. The performance of motor in transient state and steady state are shown. The parameters of machine are given and the controlling strategy is performed using MATLAB/Simulink software. The control strategy is simulated on a 7.5 hp SQIM drive with two-level insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) inverter in MATLAB/Simulink software.
