Nonlinear Electrical Simulation of High-Power Synchronous Generator System 2006-01-3041
An innovative nonlinear simulation approach for high power density synchronous generator systems is developed and implemented. Due to high power density, the generator operates in nonlinear region of the magnetic circuit. Magnetic Finite Element Analysis (FEA) makes nonlinear simulation possible. Neural network technique provides nonlinear functions for system level simulation. Dynamic voltage equation provides excellent mathematical model for system level simulations. Voltage, current, and flux linkage quantities are applied in Direct-Quadrature (DQ) rotating frame. The simulated system includes main machine, exciter, rectifier bridge, bang-bang control, and PI control circuitry, forming a closed loop system. Each part is modeled and then integrated into the system model.
