Operation features of an induction generator are revealed in the paper. Parametric resonance as a cause of induction generator excitation is investigated. The study was performed by the mathematical description and modeling in the block diagram environment Simulink pack of MatLab software application. It was confirmed on the basis of the studies that residual magnetization is not a mandatory factor for the transition of the induction machine in the generator mode. The power generation conditions are estimated on the frequency characteristics of the induction generator equivalent circuit.


Parametric resonance, induction generator, self-excitation conditions, frequency characteristics, mathematical modeling.
