s. 18-26 DOI: DOI: 10.17274/AEZ.2017.30.02.


The article presents the most important advantages of multi-phase electric drives. The construction of a five-phase squirrel cage induction motor together with possible stator winding distribution cases is presented, which affect the properties of such motor. Increased reliability of five-phase drives was indicated. The drive operation properties were confirmed by experimental results.
