Multi-Junction Fed Field Oriented Control of Induction Motor
In today’s era use of induction motor is gaining much more attention in consumer and industrial applications.
The three phase representation of this machine provides an option for variable-speed applications. By adopting Variable
Frequency Drives, torque and speed can be controlled in ac motors. Moreover, speed control can also be achieved by varying
flux and torque independently thereby incorporating field oriented control. In this paper induction motor is being fed from
the multi-junction photovoltaic system. Maximum power is extracted from the multi-junction solar cell by using incremental
conductance which is a method to track maximum power. The output of multi-junction solar cell is boosted using a boost
converter. The fast Fourier analysis of the boost converter output is done and the results are provided.
