Dual motor drives designs are attractive for high power application because of their mechanical simplicity, traction and regenerative braking control on low friction surfaces. However, such configurations normally require two power inverters with coordinated control. The high cost and large size of packaging needs of the inverters make such dual inverter, dual motor drive configurations are economically less competitive. Therefore, the need for dual motor drives fed by single inverter rising consequently to reduce sizes and costs with respect to the single motor drives, either in industrial or in traction application. This paper aims to investigate the behavior of dual motor drives fed by single inverter using averaging technique MATLAB/Simulink has been chosen as the simulation tools.
