This paper presents simulation approach for the performance analysis of self-excited induction generator (SEIG) for wind power application. The analysis like flux distribution, flux density distribution, and torque and force calculations through 2D finite element analysis (FEA). An induction machine model considered as phase voltage, phase angle calculations through ANSYS simulation. At the beginning, a numerical calculation of the magnetic field distribution of self-excited induction machine, under consideration is carried out. The results of numerical calculations are to be presented through ANSYS simulation and an evaluation of the steady state behavior of the self-excited induction generator is presented for the wind power application.
