Two synchronized bus-clamping pulse width modulation (PWM) strategies based on the space vector approach are proposed for high-power induction motor drives. The two strategies together can produce PWM waveforms with any odd pulse number, preserving the waveform symmetries. The proposed strategies operate upto the six-step mode, maintaining the proportionality between the reference magnitude and the fundamental voltage generated throughout. These two strategies lead to lesser harmonic distortion as well as lesser peak current over the conventional space vector strategy (CSVS) in the high speed ranges of constant V/F drives. The reduction in the harmonic distortion over CSVS subject to a given maximum switching frequency (FSW(MAX)) of the inverter is demonstrated theoretically as well as experimentally for FSW(MAX)=750 Hz and 450 Hz, both with and without overmodulation. The best reduction in the distortion is as high as 30% to 50% in the different cases considered. Further, these two PWM strategies are also useful in reducing the switching frequency of the inverter over sine-triangle PWM and CSVS subject to an upper limit on the harmonic distortion.
