Today, continuous working of power inverter drives is mandatory for several applications. Damages to materials, machines or even risks to human life have to be absolutely avoided. In the literature, fault-tolerant algorithms and architectures to achieve a successful fault handling are investigated. Researchers aim at reducing the number and cost of additional components, improving at the same time the inverter performances under postfault conditions. Cost, post-fault power derating and increasing distortion are usually conflicting requirements. In this paper, a fault-tolerant three phase inverter is presented. A reconfigurable architecture and a novel fault-tolerant algorithm is designed to reduce DC Link Voltages unbalance. The system is modeled in PSIM-MATLAB/Simulink environment. The power stage model is implemented in PSIM environment. The fault-tolerant algorithm is implemented in MATLAB-Simulink environment. The SimCoupler module is used to perform co-simulation of the entire model. Simulation results are shown to test performances of the proposed algorithm.
