This paper describes an experimental and numerical optimization procedure for off-line extraction of parameters for unsymmetrical, single-phase induction machines with capacitor-start operation. In addition to permitting asymmetry between phase winding parameters, the approach requires only average and rms measurements as inputs; electrical phase angle measurements are not required. The method is validated on an experimental motor with transient and steady-state simulations, using fitted parameters obtained using the proposed approach.
