Figure 14c shows the induced excitation current by the main magnetic field winding. This plot shows that pulse current pair on each phase stator winding excites field winding.
[L.sub.s[sigma]], [L.sub.f[sigma]], [L.sub.D[sigma]], and [L.sub.Q[sigma]] are leakage inductances, respectively, for stator winding, field winding, and orthogonal axis damper winding.
It provides dc power to the field winding of the synchronous machine.
The main generator dynamic parameters are the inductive reactance's of direct-axis and quadrature-axis, time constants of field winding at open circuit (no load) and short circuit and rotor inertia.
A synchronous motor with a superconducting field winding and a copper armature is a typical example.
