Multiphase induction motor is a preferred choice for industrial process control due to its high reliability index. It is evident that, in multiphase machine the loss of one or two phases does not necessarily stop the system from running as in the case of three phase machine. In fact, multiphase machine offers numerous advantages compared to the conventional three phase machine. The quest for high power industrial drive created interest and attention towards multiphase systems. Among the multiphase machines, the six-phase category is more common due to the simplicity in converting a three-phase machine to a ‘multiple of three’ phase machine. By splitting the phase belt of a three phase induction machine, a six-phase machine is realised. The aim of this paper is to analyse and simulate performance of a 5Hp asymmetrical six-phase induction machine using the well known Park’s transformation. A three phase asynchronous machine is reconfigured and modelled into a six-phase machine of the same volume as the three phase machine. Different tests are carried out on the sample machine to determine machine parameters. Simulation results, that predicts the dynamic performance of the machine using MATLAB, at start up are presented and discussed.
