Abstract : In this paper, filtering techniques to reduce the adverse effects of motor leads on high-frequency PWM inverter fed AC motor drives will be examined. The filter was designed to keep the motor terminal from the cable surge impedance to reduce overvoltage reflections, ringing, and the dv/dt, di/dt. Therefore, filtering techniques are investigated to reduce the motor terminal overvoltage, ringing, and EMI noise in inverter fed ac motor drive systems. The output filter is used to limit the rate of the inverter output voltage and reduce EMI(common mode noise) to the motor. The performance of the output filter is evaluated through simulations (PSIM) and experiment on PWM inverter-fed ac motor drive(3phase, 3hp(2.2kw), input voltage 220/380V, induction motor). An experimental PWM drive system reduction of conducted EMI was implemented on an available TMS320C31 microprocessor control board.
Finally, experimental results showed that the inverter output filter reduces more CM noise than the LPF(low pass filter) and reduce overvoltage and ringing at the motor terminal.
