This paper analyzes a six-phase two-motor drive, consisting of a six-phase voltage-source inverter (VSI), a six-phase induction machine, and a three-phase induction machine. Stator windings of the two machines are connected in series in an appropriate manner. This enables full decoupling of the dynamics of the two machines by means of vector control. Detailed mathematical modeling of the system is performed and the set of d-q equations, describing the two machines connected in series to a six-phase VSI, is developed. The resulting model clearly shows the possibility of independent vector control of the two machines, although a single VSI is used as the supply. An experimental rig is constructed and existence of the decoupled dynamic control of the two machines supplied from a single VSI is fully verified by extensive experimental testing.
