The paper presents an accurate procedure for modeling induction generator in steady state unbalanced distribution power-flow analysis. The proposed induction generator model is based on the steady-state model of the induction machine. The model is developed without any assumptions. The unbalanced factor of the voltage at the machine bus is fully exploited. The model is integrated into the forward-backward sweep power-flow algorithm. Calculated results of induction generator connected to unbalanced radial feeders show that the developed induction generator model is accurate.
