This paper presents the design of an electromagnetic interference (EMI) filter for a low-voltage high-current induction-motor drives supplied by dc power grids. In order to effectively design the EMI filter, a suitable common-mode/differential-mode (CM/DM) separation technique has been used. Due to the high operating currents, the software-based separation technique using time-domain measurements has been applied. The proposed technique allows the CM and DM sections of the EMI filter to be properly selected in a more economical way, i.e., without the need of a dedicated hardware or costly radio frequency (RF) instrumentation. The design has been done according to a power-density criterion. The effectiveness of the proposed CM/DM separation technique and the EMI filter features/performance has been assessed by experimental tests, carried out with an 1.1-kW pulsewidth modulation (PWM) inverter-fed induction-motor drive, supplied by a 48-V dc power grid.
