The application of the induction electrical generator instead of the synchronous ones in the self-contained power diesel-generating plants is known to have a number of advantages. The induction generator is a simple and reliable non-contact electrical machine. The symmetric rotor possesses perfect damping features being of great importance with the asymmetric load. When operating with the frequency converter (amplifier) the generator is not loaded with the highest harmonics which makes it possible to lower the dimensions power by a factor of 1.5-2. The capacitor system is considered to be the simplest one among the available systems for voltage excitation and control. The paper considers the mathematical model of the two-phase induction machine. The model regards the residual magnetization of the magnetic circuit as well as its saturation in the nominal conditions.
