Fault Analysis Of Induction Motor Drive System Using Maxwell-Simplorer
Squirrel cage induction motors are the best preferred AC motors for many industrial applications. Variable
frequeny drive systems are used for variable speed operation of the motor. There are chances for different types of faults in
the drive part which will severely affects the system performance. Switching fault analysis of three phase induction motor
drive system is very helpful for the design of the fault detection algorithm. In this paper, several results under different
switching fault conditions are presented for effective analysis. Entire system is modeled and simulated in Maxwell and
