Matlab/Simulink Model of Space Vector PWM for Three-Phase Voltage Source Inverter
Variable voltage and frequency supply to AC drives is invariably obtained from a three-phase voltage source inverter (VSI). A number of pulse width modulation (PWM) schemes are used to obtain variable voltage and frequency supply. The most widely used PWM schemes for three-phase VSI are carrier-based sinusoidal PWM and space vector PWM (SVPWM). There is an increasing trend of using space vector PWM (SVPWM) because of their easier digital realisation and better dc bus utilisation. This paper focuses on step by step development of MATLAB/SIMULINK model of SVPWM. Firstly model of a three-phase VSI is discussed based on space vector representation. Next simulation model of SVPWM is obtained using MATLAB/SIMULINK. Simulation results are also provided.
