A self-excited induction generator offers certain advantages over a conventional synchronous generator as a source of isolated power supply in underdeveloped nations with limited energy resources. However, its practical applications have been restricted because of its inability to control the terminal voltage and the frequency under varying load conditions. In this paper a microprocessor controlled static VAR compensator is proposed and constructed. The self excitation of the generator and the
