    Can anyone give me a link where I can study self excited induction generator in detail??

    Can you clarify 'self-excited'?
    According to Wikipedia "An induction machine requires externally supplied armature current; it cannot start on its own as a generator. Because the rotor field always lags behind the stator field, the induction machine always "consumes" reactive power, regardless of whether it is operating as a generator or a motor. A source of excitation current for magnetizing flux (reactive power) for the stator is still required, to induce rotor current. This can be supplied from the electrical grid or, once it starts producing power, from the generator itself."

    in self-excited induction generator we make attach capacitor bank to the stator terminals(for reactive power).
    It has been mentioned a bit about it in following link:
    http://electricalstudy.net/lesson/poly-phase-induction-generator-or-asynchronous-generator-2/
    but i need a detailed explanation
    also refer to following links:
    http://www.electricaleasy.com/2014/12/induction-generator-working.html
    http://electrical4u.com/induction-generator/

    it has been asked about it in following thread too...but it remained unanswered:
    http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/t...-self-excited-induction-generator-seig.29178/
    can anyone refer me a link or book which contains a detailed explanation for this.

    One thread is enough.
