Transfer Matrix Methods

Part of the History of Mechanism and Machine Science book series (HMMS, volume 20)


Linke [6] measured the main current and exciting current after a short circuit. The main current rose to about 32 times the normal current. Brown Boverie Co. [1] reported that for a 3000 RPM 8800 kva machine, the maximum short circuit current is about 10-20 times that at full load. The current diminishes rapidly, but the steady state value is reached only after several seconds.
