# Space Vector Modulation - Principle

Principle

A three phase inverter as shown to the right must be controlled so that at no time are both switches in the same leg turned on or else the DC supply would be shorted. This requirement may be met by the complementary operation of the switches within a leg. i.e. if A+ is on then A− is off and vice versa. This leads to eight possible switching vectors for the inverter, V0 through V7 with six active switching vectors and two zero vectors.

Vector A+ B+ C+ A− B− C− VAB VBC VCA
V0 = {000} OFF OFF OFF ON ON ON 0 0 0 zero vector
V1 = {100} ON OFF OFF OFF ON ON +Vdc 0 −Vdc active vector
V2 = {110} ON ON OFF OFF OFF ON 0 +Vdc −Vdc active vector
V3 = {010} OFF ON OFF ON OFF ON −Vdc +Vdc 0 active vector
V4 = {011} OFF ON ON ON OFF OFF −Vdc 0 +Vdc active vector
V5 = {001} OFF OFF ON ON ON OFF 0 −Vdc +Vdc active vector
V6 = {101} ON OFF ON OFF ON OFF +Vdc −Vdc 0 active vector
V7 = {111} ON ON ON OFF OFF OFF 0 0 0 zero vector

To implement space vector modulation a reference signal Vref is sampled with a frequency fs (Ts = 1/fs). The reference signal may be generated from three separate phase references using the transform. The reference vector is then synthesized using a combination of the two adjacent active switching vectors and one or both of the zero vectors. Various strategies of selecting the order of the vectors and which zero vector(s) to use exist. Strategy selection will affect the harmonic content and the switching losses.

More complicated SVM strategies for the unbalanced operation of four-leg three-phase inverters do exist. In these strategies the switching vectors define a 3D shape (a hexagonal prism in coordinates or a dodecahedron in abc Three-Dimensional Space Vector Modulation in abc coordinates) rather than a 2D hexagon.

### Famous quotes containing the word principle:

Thus it seemed that this one hillside illustrated the principle of all the operations of Nature. The Maker of this earth but patented a leaf. What Champollion will decipher this hieroglyphic for us, that we may turn over a new leaf at last?
Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

The principle goal of education in the schools should be creating men and women who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done; men and women who are creative, inventive and discoverers, who can be critical and verify, and not accept, everything they are offered.
Jean Piaget (1896–1980)

The monk in hiding himself from the world becomes not less than himself, not less of a person, but more of a person, more truly and perfectly himself: for his personality and individuality are perfected in their true order, the spiritual, interior order, of union with God, the principle of all perfection.
Thomas Merton (1915–1968)
