The steady state performance of a wind-driven, sinusoidal-pulse-width-modulated inverter- fed, single-phase induction generator is presented in this paper. The scheme provides a control (or regulation) of the induction generator’s load angular frequency and voltage, by connecting sinusoidal-pulse-width-modulated inverter in the auxiliary winding of the generator. The inverter also provides real and reactive power requirements of the generator. The system of equations used for the computer simulation is the same as those considered in transient analysis, except that, the rate of change of system variables are equated to zero. Harmonics balance technique was used in the steady state analysis. A laboratory model of the system was implemented and the experimental results obtained agreed very well with computer simulated results.
