Research Summary: Induction motors are used in wind turbines to generate electricity. Synchronous generator is used in ships (Marine Industry). Brushes are required in synchronous generator to supply DC voltage to the rotor for excitation. Battery is required to supply Dc voltage, hence requires lot of maintenance. The working of induction motor as generator is not yet done on full scale basis. The comparative study is not yet done by researchers . Our aim is to replace the synchronous generator with an induction generator and prove its effectiveness. I believe it would create a revolution in the marine industry, if proved.
