Abstract

In undergraduate power electronics courses, students are taught the sinusoidal pulse-width-modulation (Sine-PWM) principle to synthesize three-phase sinusoidal voltages. It is well known that the space vector PWM approach (SV-PWM) utilizes the available de-bus voltage of the inverter to its maximum, resulting in an improved voltage capability of nearly 15% compared to Sine-PWM However, SV-PWM is not discussed in the first course due to its perceived complexity in explanation and implementation. This paper describes how SV-PWM can be discussed in a basic course on power electronics.
