An autonomous induction generator (IG) with an asymmetric configuration, in which both the stator and the rotor are single-phase, is often formed when a triple-phase wound rotor loses connection to a winding component while running. The machine still works and is shown to be capable of generating modulated waveforms. Equations can help as an IG design guideline. The first harmonics of the mutual inductance effect on the IG is explained by its steady-state equivalent circuit. View Full-Text
