Improved reliability and fault tolerant operation of converter systems are extremely important for industrial AC drives. The paper considers variable frequency variable voltage operation of a three-phase induction motor in single phase mode for two common faults of a three-phase inverter, i.e., open base drive and device short-circuit. The motor performance has been extensively analyzed in single-phase mode and remedial strategies have been developed to neutralize large second and other lower order harmonic pulsating torques. In a single phase open loop volts/Hz control mode of a faulty three-phase inverter, it has been demonstrated that odd harmonic voltages at appropriate phase angles can be injected to neutralize the low frequency pulsating torques so as to permit smooth drive operation. It has been shown that the pulsating torque can be further reduced by load dependent flux programming rather than operating with constant rated flux
