Induction Machine Modelling

  • Ahmed Masmoudi
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering book series (BRIEFSELECTRIC)


The chapter deals with the modelling of the induction machine (IM). Following the analysis of the principle of operation which is based on the induction phenomenon, the a-b-c model is established assuming a sinusoidal spatial repartition of the air gap flux density, a linear magnetic circuit, and constant phase resistors. The a-b-c model makes possible the establishment of a state representation of the IM. Then, the Park transform is introduced and applied to the IM a-b-c model, leading to its Park one. An analysis of the IM steady-state operation is then carried out using its Park model. The chapter is achieved by a case study dealing with the doubly fed induction machine which is widely integrated in wind power generating systems.
