Three-Phase Custom Synchronous Machine

This example shows a custom Simscape™ implementation of a Synchronous Machine (SM). To view the SM source code, double-click on the Synchronous Machine block and then click on the hyperlink 'Source code'.

This test circuit shows the SM being used as a generator, the field has constant voltage applied, and the rotor is turned at a constant speed. The overall model has been initialized to start in periodic steady state to supply the 500MW load.
