Induction motors are still popular in industries amongst the several types of motor due to its simple, robust and maintenance free construction. With the fast progress in transport industry the need exists for ac machines with higher power per unit. Six phase induction motor is a solution where higher power per volume is required such as for electric vehicle application. In this paper, six phase induction motor is operated by compact nine switch inverter. Space vector modulation technique is incorporated to operate nine switch inverter for six phase induction motor drive.
