Output total harmonic distortion of the five phase inverter topologies and corresponding dynamic performance of five phase induction motor are investigated in this paper. Four types of five phase inverter topologies are simulated by using direct pulse and sinusoidal pulse width modulation methods for the inverter control. Arbitrary reference frame method has been employed to model a five phase induction motor. Special transformer connection can be used to transform the available three phase grid supply to five phases but it requires more space, frequent maintenance and high cost so inverters are preferred. Four types of five phase inverter topologies and induction motor modeling are implemented by MATLAB/ Simulink. These multi-phases (more than three phases)find applications where reliability and high output power are main concern for example: ship propulsion systems, hybrid electric vehicles.
