Abstract: Induction motor drives are employed in many of the industrial applications. The drives output depends on the inverter. Multilevel inverters are generally used in the induction motor drives but the dual inverter fed induction motor drive found more advantageous than the multilevel inverters. The performance of the Induction motor drive with open end winding for various levels of output voltage is presented in this paper. The inverter configuration implemented produces three-level, four-level, five-level and six-level in the output voltage waveform. The voltage and current harmonic distortion decreases as the number of levels are increased. The performance of the motor drive with the proposed inverter topology was found effective for sixth level. The simulation analysis of Induction motor drive with dual inverter is carried out in MATLAB-Simulink environment.
