Discussion

Reasons for the no-load test to be designed to result in a lower frequency than the rated

frequency of 50 Hz;

The Induction generator normally runs on negative slip. This is because its rotor runs

faster than the synchronous speed of the equivalent induction motor.

During the no-load test, there will be no active power output. The slip of the generator

will be zero or a positive value under this condition. Therefore, in order to achieve a positive

slip, the no-load test is designed to result in a lower frequency than 50 Hz.

The cause for variations of the voltage and current waveforms of the generator when

loading;

In the case of an induction motor, the motor speed is decreased when the load is

increased. But in an induction generator, the power output increases as the load increases, which

in turn increases the speed. Therefore, as the load on an induction generator changes, the speed

of the generator changes with it. This causes the current and voltage output to change.

Induction generators can be used in wind turbines and micro hydro installations due to

their ability to produce useful power at varying rotor speeds. It is especially useful in wind

power generating stations where the speed is always a variable factor. Induction generators are

not suitable for high power applications.

Induction generators are mechanically and electrically simpler than other generator

types. They are also more rugged, requiring no brushes or commutations. Other advantages of

the induction generator are; it is cheaper, reliable in service, light weight, does not require

routine maintenance. Therefore, induction generators are ideal for use in remotely located mini

hydro plants and wind power generation stations.

Self Excited Induction Generators (SEIG) are very useful in isolated power generation

because it can easily handle dynamic loads.

Discussion about the above plotted graphs;

a) No Load characteristics for varying capacitance and constant prime mover speed.

E

speed according to equation; Im =

ωL m

Line Voltage increases with the Capacitance. But the curve tends to saturate at higher

values of capacitance.

b) No Load characteristic for varying prime mover speed and constant capacitance.

i. Voltage Vs Speed

The Voltage decreases as the Load Current increases. The curve is nearly linear.

Frequency remains constant as load current increases. Therefore, it can be concluded that

the frequency does not depend on load current at constant speed.

Graph does not indicate a clear relationship between these two parameters.

d) Performance of the loaded generator without speed regulation.

Voltage decreases with increasing Load Current. The curve is nearly linear.

Frequency is almost constant for low values of load current, but decreases rapidly for

higher values of load current. These characteristics are shown when there is no speed regulation.
