In this paper, an electrical drive model, implementing a doubly-fed differential drive (DFDD) is presented. Two doubly-fed induction machines, having the corresponding rotor phases connected, constitutes the differential wheel drive. Two inverters are supplying the machine stators with three-phase power of variable magnitude and frequency. The power required to supply the inverters may be delivered from a constant voltage DC source like a battery. Active power requirements for the machines and the inverters over the DFDD speed range may be obtained. Reactive power requirements for minimum copper loss may be derived as well. The DFDD may provide propulsion to electrical vehicles.
