Adjustable-speed drives (ASDs) are widely used in both industrial and commercial applications as the most versatile and efficient means of achieving motion control. With the emergence of applications demanding accurate control of AC drives using induction machines, the betterment of such a drive system has become a major concern. This is being achieved with the advent of solid state semiconductor devices and cheap microprocessors which provide better control. The elements in the drive system and the control algorithm used are the factors which can be modified inorder to get the best outcome from the drive for a particular application. This work addresses the issue of poor power factor. One of the reason for poor power factor in conventional induction machine drives are the three phase diode bridge rectifier at the front end for AC-DCconversion. The use of a high power factor converter with ZVS transition leads to better power factor and lower conduction losses. Vector control provides better dynamic performance and lower energy consumption. The simulation of vector controlled induction motor drive has been performed using MATLAB/Simulink. The control circuit was implemented using TMS320f28335 DSP controller and results are verified
