Abstract

Six-phase induction machine presents
several benefits over their conventional three-phase counterpart. This paper thus presents the model and described in detail the simulation of a Six-phase split winding induction machine in a Matlab/Simulink
environment. The Simulink model is built in such a flexible manner such that various variables of the machine can be accessed easily for further purposes such as control. Finally, simulation results showing free
acceleration as well as dynamic response of the machine were presented for both direct ac supply and the PWM inverter voltage source.
