Abstract

The Multiphase machine coupled with multiphase converters can be a candidate for adjustable speed drives where the machine can have the same control principal as conventional three-phase but it is superior from fault tolerant capability aspect. Numerous research topics deal with multiphase machines are introduced, specifically five-phase. One of the research topics is the machine design. The design procedure starts by finding motor dimensions, winding dimensions for both stator and rotor. Second step is to the motor parameters. Lastly, the design should be evaluated through the motor performance using both analytical and numerical techniques. A case study of designing a 3 hp five-phase induction motor, is introduced to the same conference two parts where part I covers the dimensions side and part II covers the performance evaluation for the designed motor using analytical technique (MA TLAB/ SIMULINK). The target of this paper is to assess the designed motor and investigate the performance using numerical technique such Finite Elements, (FE).
