Capacitor calculation SEIG

  1. Mar 26, 2008 #1

    I am doing now my diploma with the name "numerical and experimental study of the self excited induction generator for wind turbine applications" and i have a problem. i don't know how to calculate the value of the capacitor for self-excitation. what i've found is very cryptic and i tried to calculate the capacitor but for the model of a 4 kw machine in matlab simpower systems the capacitor per phase is about 200 microFarad.
    Does somebody have acces to a clear algorith for calculating the capacitor needed for self-excitation?
