ABSTRACT
This paper presents a new method for including the crosssaturation effect and the leakage path saturation effect together in the generalized model of a three phase induction machine. Four different cases of operation are investigated at load and no load. The machine performance has been determined with the help of a novel abc-dq circuit model. The model posses the advantages of both the dq and direct phase model.

The first is the main flux path saturation. The second type is the leakage path saturation. Cross saturation between the d- and q-axis fluxes and mutual saturation between the main and leakage fluxes should be considered for accurate representation. Each type of saturation effects has been discussed separately in many papers in the literatures. Some of the authors neglect the effect of Saturation [l-31. Others take the saturation effects on the magnetizing reactance through the open circuit characteristic and neglect the effect of saturation on the leakage inductance [4-61. The saturation effects on the leakage reactance in terms of the lockedrotor machine current have been also considered [7,8]. The method of representing the saturation of the equivalent leakage reactance as a function of the locked-rotor current does not properly account for saturation effects upon the leakage reactance in the different transient conditions. Many authors discussed widely the cross-saturation [9-121. But it is noted that the mutual saturation effects between the main and leakage fluxes have been neglected. This led to neglecting the effect of saturation on all the leakage inductances and neglecting the influence of the leakage flux upon the saturation level of the main inductances. In fact, this gives noticeable errors especially at starting conditions.
