Modeling of Salient Pole Synchronous Machine
This paper proposes the modeling of salient pole synchronous machine. Synchronous machines are ac machines that have a field circuit supplied by an external dc source. Salient pole synchronous machine have salient pole or projecting poles with concentrated field windings. The rotor of salient pole synchronous machine is driven by external means producing a rotating magnetic field, which induces a three phase voltage within the stator winding. When the modulated stator current with higher frequency component would establish induced voltages in the rotor, it could be used for supplying power to rotating load. Simulation model of synchronous machine using Matlab is given.
