Electric drives are one of the most significant part of the industrial applications, which are used in the conversion of electric power into mechanical power. Today, the drives are being integrated more and more into the system and hence, the reliability of the electric drives has become a major problem. A common electric drive system consists of many number of components such as an electric machine, power converters, controllers, sensors as well as other communication devices. So the major focus in the modern era has been to increase the reliability of the electric drive system as a whole.
