In certain types of adjustable frequency induction motor drives, optimal control of the motor can be best implemented by using information on the motor slip frequency. Unfortunately, this generally requires the use of an electromechanical speed transducer coupled to the shaft. The presence of this transducer spoils the general characteristics of ruggedness(More)
The utilization of the squirrel cage induction motor as an autonomous induction generator is briefly reviewed. In view of potential new applications, the discussion focuses on a simple exciter scheme based on using a static reactive power generator implemented with fixed capacitors and thyristor controlled inductors. The feasibility of the proposed scheme(More)
