Predicting conducted emissions in pulsewidth modulation (PWM) inverter induction motor drive systems requires various frequency-dependent effects to be considered. A frequency domain method has advantages in such cases compared to a time domain approach. Based on the modal analysis presented in Part I, this paper develops frequency domain models to evaluate the spectra of the conducted emissions directly. The common and differential mode excitation sources are modeled in the frequency domain and related to the switching functions of the PWM inverter. Network models are established where the induction motor is represented using its frequency-dependent impedance characteristics, which can be obtained from measurements. The influences of system unbalances and of transmission-line effects due to long cables are investigated. Predicted emission spectra are compared with laboratory measurements and those derived from the time domain simulation. It is found that the agreement is good. The proposed method allows emission spectra to be predicted without recourse to specialist circuit simulators.
