Performance Analysis of a Self-excited Induction Generator Mathematical Dynamic Model with Magnetic Saturation, Cross Saturation Effect and Iron Losses
Mathematical Modelling and Engineering Problems
Construction of appropriate mathematical model of plant (object to be modeled) has especially important meaning for designing controller. A reliable and good control performance requires more detailed model. Nevertheless, the latter must be established from at least two viewpoints of preciseness and compactness. In this paper, the considered plant is a self-excited induction generator (SEIG). In order to improve the accuracy, we take into consideration in the SEIG modeling: magnetic saturation
... henomenon, cross saturation effect and iron losses. To our best knowledge, this is the first time that the three mentioned phenomena have been integrated into the same and single SEIG model which is presented in an inherent mathematical form. As we will see in the results, the contribution of these three phenomena in the accuracy improvement is really significant. In addition, to achieve compactness of the proposed model, a simpler configuration is obtained for the electrical equivalent circuit associated to the studied model by using Thevenin transformation. The proposed model is built in MATLAB-SIMULINK environment and used to study and analyze the performance of a SEIG under various operating point conditions. The obtained results are compared to measurements and also to the values obtained from models without the three discussed phenomena.
