Due to the mechanical wear at the slip-rings wound rotor induction machines are only rarely used as motors today. Regardless, they gain increasing importance for generator applications in wind and water power plants. Their main advantage in this area is that the inverter in the rotor circuit can be designed to a smaller capacity with regard to the maximum generator output. Furthermore, the DFIM can be ran in a comparatively large slip range which allows for better utilization of the available wind energy.
