With the advent of power electronic technologies, Induction Motors (IM) has become the major power horse of industries. For the control of inverter fed induction machines, various pulse width modulation techniques were developed. These modulation schemes added to the ease of operating the inverter fed induction machines. Also desired performance could be attained by varying the modulation schemes. The two basic modulation schemes that are popularly used are the Sine triangle pulse width modulation scheme and Space vector pulse width modulation scheme. The paper presents a comparison among the two schemes when they are applied to an inverter fed induction machine. The increasing energy cost has made popular the use of renewable energy systems. The induction machine is supplied from a photovoltaic system and the simulation results in MATLAB/SIMULINK are presented.
