Single-stage solar powered, battery assisted five-phase induction motor drive is proposed to avail benefits such as less cost, higher efficiency, and compact in size. Major goal of this paper is to investigate the performance of five-phase induction motor for solar boat application. Also, such type of solar boats requires battery energy storage systems for continuous operation over the specified period. This paper also investigates the performance of input ripple currents of battery as well as solar PV array in both conventional three-phase and proposed five-phase systems. Simulation-based results proven that input current ripples less in case of five-phase systems, which results in enhanced lifetime of battery as well as DC link capacitor in comparison with three-phase. Also incorporates all the performance parameters such as cost, reliability, power density, device current stresses, and starting currents for both the systems. Results proven that five-phase system offers superior performance compared to existing conventional approach.
