Calculations

(1) Self-excited Induction generator

Capacitance required to obtain;

1) Rated voltage of 240V at the given speed.

C= 66μF

2) Rated voltage of 240V at the rated frequency of 50 Hz.

| Ic | = | VCω |

Here as | Ic| = | Im |,

when V =240V, f = 50 Hz from the graph we can obtain Im = 2.35A

Also ω = 2πf =2π*50 =314.159 rads-1

2.35
Then, C=
240 * 314.159
= 31.2 μF

(2) Grid Connected Induction Generator

Sample Calculation

ω = 3050 rpm Wattmeter Reading = 0.302 kW Ґ= 1.9Nm

3050 * 2 * Ï
Input Power = 1.9 Nm * ( ) rad/s
