The influence of three capacitor excitation topologies (shunt, short-shunt and long-shunt) on the steady-state and dynamic performance of a single-phase, self-excited induction generator is explored in this paper. Attention is focused on the influence of the different capacitor connections on the generator overloaded and output power capabilities. The generator voltage with shunt excitation connection collapses when overloaded, while with either the long or short-shunt excitation connection the generator is able to sustain the load at a lower operating voltage and larger load current
