Sinusoidal Pulse Width Modulation variable speed drives are increasingly applied in many new industrial applications that require superior performance. Be it domestic application or industry, motion control is required everywhere. Recently, developments in power electronics and semiconductor technology have lead improvements in power electronic systems. Recent developments in speed control methods of the induction motor have led to their large scale use in almost all electrical drives. Variable voltage and frequency supply to ac drives is invariably obtained from a three-phase voltage source inverter, which is carrier-based sinusoidal PWM. Simulink is utilized with MATLAB to get a reliable and flexible simulation. PWM technique is proven to be an effective way of controlling speed of induction motor. In ac motor drives, SPWM inverters make it possible to control both frequency and magnitude of the voltage and current applied to a motor. As a result, PWM inverter-powered motor drives are more variable and offer in a wide range better efficiency and higher performance when compared to fixed frequency motor drives. Three phase voltage-fed PWM inverters are recently showing growing popularity for multi-megawatt industrial drive applications. Simulation results are obtained using MATLAB/Simulink environment for effectiveness of the study.
