A three-phase voltage source inverter driven induction motor dynamic model developed using Simulink / MATLAB is presented. The presented model is derived from the d-q motor model. A modular approach is used in the construction of the motor-drive system model. The model presented is useful for studying both the steady-state and transient behavior of the motor drive system. The developed model enables the user to access all parameters of interest. Modifications can be made to the system model in order for it to be used with other motor drive system topologies. The model has benefits for use by undergraduate student researchers, and professors when used as a teaching tool in undergraduate courses.
