Alternate-Current Machines

  • Federico Milano
Part of the Power Systems book series (POWSYS, volume 0)


This chapter describes the two most important alternate-current machines used in power systems, namely the synchronous machine and the induction machine. Section 15.1 provides a detailed taxonomy of synchronous machine models, as well as a discussion about saturation models, the center of inertia and the sub-synchronous resonance phenomenon. Section 15.2 describes various induction machine models and provides an example about the induction motor start-up transient.
