Only precise industrial applications can benefit from the high-frequency performance of variable-speed drives with low switching losses. A five-phase induction motor (FPIM) is connected to a voltage source inverter (VSI) via a $LC$ filter (low pass filter) to reduce high-frequency losses in the motor. A five-phase sinusoidal voltage is used to lower the high $dv/dt$ at the motor terminals. However, sustained resonant frequency oscillations destabilize closed-loop control of the FPIM drive at certain operational points. This paper presents and analyzes a variety of high-frequency SVPWM techniques, both continuous and discontinuous. It is also possible to optimize the switching frequency of the five-phase two-level VSI fed FPIM drive using an improved current ripple prediction method. Auxiliary circuits and high-frequency sensors are not necessary in this system, making it more stable. Simulated and experimental results are used to evaluate the stability of a drive under a variety of conditions.
