There has been a growing demand for variable speed operation in the electrical drives. The induction motor is one of the most popular machines which are known for its robustness, reliability, high efficiency and much more. There are various methods to control the speed of the induction motor. Some of them are namely; change in applied voltage, rotor resistance change, pole changing, etc. Recently, Field oriented control has gained a lot of popularity as it can produce full torque at zero speeds and has a capability of faster response which make it suitable for many applications. Also, renewable fed induction motors have drawn the interests of a lot of researchers all around the world. Among those, PV cells forms the most reliable one due to the advancement in this field. Multi-Junction solar cells are said to perform better than their traditional counterparts and hence can be utilized for improved performance. This paper provides an extensive analysis of all the works related to this field that has been done in the recent past.
Keywords- distributed generation, optimal sizing, meta-heuristic approaches
