The paper presents an effective electromechanical saturated model for transient analysis of saturated self-excited induction generator (SEIG). A neutral connection through impedance is included for an exact modeling of a Park's wye connected induction generator. Shunt configuration of connected capacitors is explored. A constrained optimization is used to compute required capacitor values. Numerical and experimental data obtained during balanced and unbalanced transients of a 380-V, 5.5-kVA, 11.9-A, 50-Hz induction generator, are performed to attest the usefulness and practicability of the proposed SEIG modeling framework.
