Pulsewidth modulation (PWM) ac drives generate high line-line motor voltage, up to twice dc bus voltage, due to the reflected-wave phenomenon. Under certain conditions, motor voltage greater than twice the dc bus voltage can occur, resulting in winding insulation failure. It is well known that by suitably adjusting the PWM pulse pattern, the occurrence of voltages greater than twice the dc bus voltage can be avoided, up to a certain maximum cable length; beyond which, output filters are typically used to limit peak motor voltage. It will be shown in this paper that when the inverter operates in the pulse dropping region, voltages greater than twice the dc bus voltage will occur, with existing methods for pulse pattern compensation. A method to adjust the PWM pulse pattern in the pulse dropping region to ensure the same reflected-wave performance as the linear PWM region is presented in this paper. Experimental results are provided to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
