An artificial neural network (ANN) is used in the identification of saturated synchronous machine parameters under diverse operating conditions. The training data base for the ANN is generated by a time-stepping coupled finite-element/state-space (CFE-SS) modeling technique which is used in the computation of the saturated parameters of a 20-kV, 733-MVA, 0.85 PF (lagging) turbogenerator at discrete load points in the P-Q capability plane for three different levels of terminal voltage. These computed parameters constitute a learning data base for a multilayer ANN structure which is successfully trained using the backpropagation algorithm. Results indicate that the trained ANN can identify saturated machine-reactances for arbitrary load points in the P-Q plane with an error less than 2% of those values obtained directly from the CFE-SS algorithm. Thus, significant savings in computational time are obtained in such parameter computation tasks.
