It is shown that, despite the asymmetrical nature of the winding connection, balanced currents can be made to flow in the three-phase stator winding. The conditions for achieving perfect phase balance are carefully deduced. With the aid of a phasor diagram, expressions for the line power factor and line current under perfect phase balance are also obtained. The effect of the phase-balancing capacitances on the generator performance is investigated. A simple dual-mode control scheme is also proposed with a view of minimizing the phase imbalance over the practical operating speed range. Experiments conducted on a 2.2-kW induction machine confirm the validity of the theoretical analysis and feasibility of the control method.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10397/17784||ISSN:||0885-8969||EISSN:||1558-0059||DOI:||10.1109/60.986436|
