Space vector modulation (SVM) technique has become a standard method for the impression of voltage references in conventional three-phase voltage source inverters. The method is nowadays used in multiphase (more than three) drives, where linear and overmodulation regions are covered only for the five-phase case. This work proposes a general SVM procedure for linear and overmodulation regions in n -phase drives (being n any odd number, ) and simplifies the extension of SVM to the multiphase case. The proposed method achieves the reference voltage at the fundamental frequency while reducing introduced harmonic components in the overmodulation region compared to previous proposals.
