Simulation Based Performance Comparison of Different Control Methods of ZSI Feeding Industrial Drives

Authors: Ravinder Singh Bhatia, Parag Nihawan, Dinesh Kumar Jain


Industrial drives are source of serious power quality problems. In this, two typical industrial drives have been dealt with, namely, FOC induction motor drives and DTC induction motor drive. The Z-source inverter is an emerging topology of power electronic converters which is capable of buck boost characteristics. The performances of different control methods based Z-source inverters feeding these industrial drives have been investigated, in this work. The test systems have been modeled and simulated in MATLAB/SIMULINK. The results obtained after carrying out these simulations have been used to draw the conclusions.

Keywords: Direct Torque Control, total harmonic distortion, Z-source inverter, field orientation control
