This paper proposes a new hybrid random pulsewidth modulation (PWM) scheme based on a TMS320LF2407 DSP, in order to disperse the acoustic switching noise spectra of an induction motor drive. The proposed random PWM pulses are produced through the logical comparison of a pseudorandom binary sequence (PRBS) bits with the PWM pulses corresponding to two random triangular carriers. For this reason, the PWM pulses of the proposed scheme possess the hybrid characteristics of the random pulse position PWM and the random carrier frequency PWM. In order to verify the validity of the proposed method, the simulations and experiments were conducted with a 1.5-kW three-phase induction motor under the 2.5-A load condition. The DSP generates the random numbers, the PRBS bits with a lead-lag random bit (8 bit) and the three-phase reference signals. Also, a frequency modulator MAX038 makes the randomized frequency triangular carrier (3 plusmn 1 kHz). From the results, the proposed scheme shows good randomization effects of the voltage, current, and acoustic noise of the motor as compared with conventional scheme (3 kHz).
