Mathematical Modelling of an 3 Phase Induction Motor Using MATLAB/Simulink

Authors(2) :-Sarma Sunilkumar M., Ami T Patel

Mechanical energy is needed in the daily life use as well as in the industry. Induction motors play a very important role in both worlds, because of low cost, reliable operation, robust operation and low maintenance. To derive the mathematical model of a 3 phase Induction motor, the theory of reference frames has been effectively used as an efficient approach. Dynamic models (mathematical models) are employed in to better understand the behaviour of induction motor in both transient and steady state. The dynamic modelling sets all the mechanical equations for the inertia, torque and speed versus time. It also models all the differential voltage, currents and flux linkages between the stationary stator as well as the moving rotor. This paper presents a step by step Matlab/Simulink implementation of an induction machine using dq0 axis transformations of the stator and rotor variables in the arbitrary reference frame [1].
