Open-switch and short-switch in a three-phase voltage source inverter (VSI) have a possibility to fault due to problems of switching devices.Any failure of the system in these applications may incur a cost and risk human live. Therefore, knowledgeon the fault mode behaviour of an inverter is extremely important from the standpoint of system design improvement, protection and fault detection. This paper presents detailed simulation results on condition monitoring and fault behaviour of VSI. The results obtained from the developed monitoring system allows user to identify the fault current. The developed system showed the capability in detecting the performance of VSI as well as identifying the characteristics of type of faults. This system provides a precaution and early detection of fault, thus reduces high maintenance cost and prevent critical fault from happening.
