The analysed results of both voltage regulation and current-harmonic suppression of a self-excited induction generator (SEIG), under unbalanced and/or nonlinear loading conditions using a current-controlled voltage source inverter (CC-VSI) are presented. A hybrid induction-machine model based on the three-phase a-b-c and the d-q frames of reference is employed to describe the dynamic performance of the studied system. The three-phase a-b-c induction-machine model is employed to derive dynamic equations of the SEIG under nonlinear loading conditions. The synchronously rotating reference frame based on a d-q axis model is used to decompose three-phase load currents into active and reactive power currents. The three-phase a-b-c stator voltages of the SEIG and the DC bus voltage of the inverter are simultaneously controlled by a proportional-integral (PI) voltage controller and a harmonic compensator. The simulated results show that the performance of the SEIG under unbalanced and/or nonlinear loading conditions has been effectively improved by the proposed compensating scheme.
