Curves (1), (2) and (3) are inherent characteristic curves of squirrel-cage motor corresponding to different excitation frequency [f.sub.s].
A nominally healthy squirrel-cage motor was firstly tested and the power spectrum of the stator current centered on the fundamental component supplied by (a) main and (b) inverter is shown in Figure 7.
The second experiment involved fault squirrel-cage motor operating at different excitation frequency of inverter with three broken basr and full load.
