Abstract


This paper presents the design of five-leg inverter control driving two three phase induction motors

using a direct torque control technique (DTC). It allows a reduction in leg counts compared with a classical

the DTC for three-leg inverters. The simulation model of the system is created and analyzed by using the

Matlab/Simulink program. The obtained results confirm that both motors are able to operate at different speed and different load conditions.
