A Generalized Matlab Simulink Model of a Three Phase Induction Motor
Induction motors are the most widely used motor drives in industry because of its simple construction and other advantages such as reliable operation, low initial cost, easy operation and simple maintenance, high efficiency and having simple control gear for starting and speed control. This usefulness of this motor has resulted into a lot of research including the transient behaviour of the machine. This paper presents a step by step Simulink implementation of an induction machine using dq0 axis transformations of the stator and rotor variables in the arbitrary reference frame. At first the important formulas are stated and then according to these formulas a generalized model of a three phase induction motor is developed and implemented. The model is used to investigate the effects of variations in the machine size and parameter values on the dynamic performance of induction machine. The proposed system has been developed and simulated by using Matlab/Simulink.
