Simulation results are presented for the performance of a slip power recovery induction generator coupled to a vertical-axis wind turbine. The suitability of this type of generator for wind-driven applications is discussed. A qualitative comparison with two other alternatives is made, highlighting the basic features of the generator configuration studied. Quantitative simulation analysis showed that it is possible to reduce the ripple in the electrical power substantially with stable operation through various changes in wind speed. Regenerative braking is possible, especially in the upper range of speed, which reduces the wear on the mechanical brakes. The design described ensures smooth motor start-up for the induction machine in the motor-mode
