Abstract:

This paper presents an electric vehicle application which is powered by an induction motor drive which is fed by the SPWM triggered five level NPC inverter. Multilevel inverters can transfer high amount of power with low total harmonic distortion due to high number of switches each switch will take up voltage stress equally thus low chances of breakdown. Here we are using sinusoidal pulse width modulation technique which is simple and easy to work out in inverter triggering. Induction motor is a simple motor which is much reliable than all other motors, we are using a three phase induction motor which is a self-starting motor with low losses. Electric Vehicle is the load for induction motor, due to excessive pollution and depletion of natural resources these EVs are getting much popular. The Simulink model of overall system is done and the simulations are performed for various conditions using MATLAB/SIMULINK and the results are obtained and studied.
