In this paper a new approach to direct torque control (DTC) of induction motor drive is presented. In comparison with the conventional DTC methods [1], [22] the inverter switching frequency is constant and is dramatically increased, requiring neither any increase of the sampling frequency, nor any high frequency dither signal. The well-developed space vector modulation technique is applied to inverter control in the proposed DTC-based induction motor drive system, thereby dramatically reducing

As compared to the existing DTC approach [2], [23] with constant inverter switching frequency, the presented new approach does not invoke any concept of deadbeat control, thereby dramatically reducing the computations. Experimental results are illustrated in this paper confirming that the proposed DTC method has the above-mentioned features even at the low speed range down to 1 r/min.
