Constraints on saturation modeling in AC machines

Peter W. Sauer

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper presents constraints which must be satisfied by saturation models of lossless fields. The constraints are derived from energy balance principles and must be satisfied by the flux linkage/current relationships in order to ensure consistency with the assumptions of a lossless field. The constraints are used to design a consistent saturation model for a synchronous machine.
