#### Abstract

This paper (Part II), together with a companion one (Part I), deals with the fault-tolerant operation of a 5-phase permanent magnet (PM) brushless DC (BLDC) drive. In particular, this paper takes advantage of the drive model formulated in Part I to determine automatically the motor current supply, namely scheduling and magnitude of the currents for the surviving phases, in the cases of a drive with two and three open phase faults. Maximum magnitude of the supply currents is also determined by equating the rms value of current in the most solicited phase to the nominal rms value Open faults of adjacent and non-adjacent phases are studied and for each fault location, besides determining the motor current supply, the torque developed by the motor is calculated. The results indicate that the reduction in the motor torque as well as the extent of the torque ripple is depending on the relative location of the faults.
