Abstract: Induction motor loss separation and efficiency measurement needs loading dynamometers and other tools as like variable voltage sinusoidal power supply. These are costly and not always usable except though a loading tool is usable. Variable frequency drives are also commonly utilized for running induction machinery and are readily accessible and low cost. Nevertheless, their usage in lieu of a constant frequency sinusoidal power supply to calculate system performance precisely is interesting, but potentially difficult because of the PWM output voltage. This paper provides few studies into the usage of variable frequency drives. The usage of the machine, the measurement criterion and the protocols shall be reported and addressed. The output presented describes the possibility of the suggested idea of calculating machine effectiveness with a PWM power source.
Keywords: Induction machines, PWM supply, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD).
