This paper proposes a topology of induction motor drive system integrating a boost converter and a three-phase inverter using solar photovoltaic panel. The motor is driven with the available power at the moment. To match impedance between the solar panel and motor load and to step up the panel voltage, a boost dc-dc converter topology is employed. Maximum power point tracking algorithm is implemented to extract maximum power from the PV panel. Space Vector PWM (SVPWM) is a more sophisticated technique for generating a fundamental sine wave that provides a higher voltage to the motor and lower total harmonic distortion). To obtain optimum motor performance and to reduce THD of the inverter output waveform, we employed space vector modulation technique for switching of inverter power circuit. The proposed system is simulated and result is discussed.
