Abstract: In this paper, we propose a new high-phase (more than three-phase) motor drive system which are being successfully used in numerous areas. High-phase motor drive systems are nowadays considered for high power adjustable speed industrial applications since they offer numerous advantages. Several topologies are investigated in the literature as viable alternative to the existing three-phase drive system. The most popular among them are five-phase and six-phase. In six-phase system two topologies are possible depending upon their possible winding configuration. In one topology, the windings or phases are 60 degrees apart and called symmetrical six-phase system. The second topology has two sets of three-phases and is displaced by 30 degrees. This is called quasi- six-phase or dual three-phase. In this paper, control technique is described for a quasi six-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) for obtaining desired output. The output of the inverter is two set of three-phases with 30̊ phase displacement. The proposed control is in essence space vector pulse width modulation (PM) based on the artificial neural network (ANN) concept. ANN method of control is highly useful for high switching frequency operation. Several types of ANN topologies are considered and finally the most optimum solution is proposed to obtain similar performance obtainable from space vector PWM. Simulation and experimental results are provided to validate the proposed theory.


Keywords: Pulse width modulation (PWM), Quasi six-phase inverter, Artificial neural network (ANN), Multi-phase
