This article presents an approach for the modulation of an asymmetric six-phase induction machine. The developed model is formed by two sets of three-phase stator windings that are displaced by 60 degrees. Since this kind of machines can have stator windings displaced with different angles this model also allows choosing another angle. Due to the fact that the induction machine was fully implemented in real coordinates, it is possible to simulate stator and rotor faults without being necessary to change system equations, only system parameters. The simulated results are used to validate the model.
