—Motor current signature analysis is the reference method for the diagnosis of induction machines' rotor faults; however, in time-varying conditions, it fails as slip and speed vary, and, thus, sideband components are spread in a bandwidth that is proportional to the variation. Variable speed drive applications are common in the aerospace, appliance,(More)
This paper introduces a new diagnostic technique for the detection of incipient electrical rotor faults in doubly fed induction Machine (DFIM) for wind power systems. In the considered application, the rotor is supplied by a static converter for the control of active and reactive power flows from the generator to the electrical grid. A new diagnostic method(More)
