Variable Speed Induction Machines

Part of the Power Electronics and Power Systems book series (PEPS)


This chapter discusses the means for the speed change of induction machines. The speed regulation is required in both generators and motors. Induction machines that serve as generators in wind power stations revolve at variable speed. Therefore, the machine and the associated equipment must ensure conversion of mechanical work in electrical energy at variable speed. The machines used as motors often serve in motion control applications, where the speed changes in continuous manner.
