Single Phase Self-Excited Induction Generator
This paper describe, how single phase induction motor work as single phase induction generator? Such generator
may be commonly used in the remote rural area, where it is not possible to draw electricity from transmission line. This
machine can be used to meet the local demand of remote area in the absence of grid. The system is suitable for microhydel
power plant and wind energy system. The generator has two specially designed winding in quadrature and capacitor is
connected across the main winding as well as auxiliary winding for excitation. Special features, advantages, theoretical
concept and experimental analysis of the system are highlighted in this paper.
