This paper presents theoretical, simulation, and experimental investigations of input current interharmonics in modern variable-speed drives based on voltage source inverters and diode input rectifiers that are caused by motor current imbalance. It investigates how a disturbance in the inverter dc side current created by unbalanced motor currents propagates from the inverter to the rectifier stage and appears as variable frequency interharmonic distortion in the rectifier input currents. Particular emphasis is given to theoretical analysis of the frequency transformations created by the inverter and rectifier stages and the magnification of the disturbance current caused by parallel resonance in the drive dc bus circuit. The theoretical results are confirmed by simulation and experimental results. They demonstrate that motor current imbalance can be responsible for high non-characteristic inter-harmonic distortion in the drive input currents. A calculation example outlines a procedure for estimation of the drive input current interharmonic distortion based on measurements of the motor currents. The paper should be helpful for people investigating the origin of problems caused by variable frequency interharmonic currents. © 2010 IEEE.
