### Fault tolerance of asymmetrical six-phase induction machine during single open circuit fault to three open circuit faults using GUI

#### Abstract

The fault tolerance of multiphase drive is favourable in the industry for its reliability and safety reasons. However, from the educational point of view, the post-fault capability of six-phase machine is still unclear. This paper presents the fault tolerance of asymmetrical six-phase induction machine (A6-IM) under one to three open-circuit faults using Graphical User Interface (GUI). In this study, the capability of A6-IM has been interpreted through a simple and user-friendly GUI helping students to have a better understanding on the current limits of A6-IM. The optimization of post-fault current references is based on maximum torque (MT) and minimum loss (ML). This work provides GUI highlighting the post-fault derating of A6-IM with single isolated neutral (1N) in two different modes namely MT and ML for educational purposes.
