As already discussed at length in Chapter 4, the cage-rotor induction generator (IG) with fixed capacitance self-excitation produces output at slightly variable frequency with load even at regulated (constant) prime-mover speed. Many electrical loads are, however, frequency and voltage sensitive. On the other hand, variable speed generation is needed in many applications to extract more energy from the primary source (wind, water energy, internal combustion engine [ICE]).
