The two primary reasons for using an adjustable speed drive (ASD) in industry are Process control and Energy conservation. However, voltage sags are the most important power quality problem facing many commercial and industrial customers. Voltage sag problem arise because of transients in supply voltage by the usage of heavy inductive loads. Therefore to improve the performance of the motor and drive, new controlling drives has to be implemented with the help of power electronics. The ride-through capability of the induction motor during voltage sag is taken into account that duration of the ride-through operation depends on the initial motor flux, speed level, rotor time constant, load torque and inertia. Also Inverter design mainly affects the motor performance. A new combination technique has been proposed for the mitigation of voltage sag on adjustable speed drive. Simulation results are illustrated for the proposed techniques. The simulation results are compared with the circuit in the combination of diode rectifier and normal inverter. It is highlighted that the waveform generated by the new technique is efficient with the reduction of the effect of voltage sag.
