    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The paper shows how the techniques of generalized harmonic analysis may be used to simulate the steady-state behavior of a multiphase cage induction motor with any form of open-circuit or short-circuit fault in the stator winding. The analytical model is verified using a four-pole machine with a 48-slot stator. Each coil of the stator winding of this machine is brought out to a patchboard that enables the stator to be configured for single-phase, two-phase, three-phase, four-phase, six-phase, or 12-phase excitation. Experimental results are compared with computer predictions for a six-phase machine with both open-circuit and short-circuit faults. © 2006 IEEE.
