This paper proposes a system, based on a selfexcited induction generator with a shunt electronic converter, to feed isolated three-phase and single-phase linear or nonlinear loads. The electronic converter is composed by a three-phase four-wire voltage source inverter (VSI) and, connected to its dc side, two dc/dc converters. The VSI compensates the current harmonics, the reactive power and the load unbalances. The first of the dc/dc converters is a battery charger/discharger and the other converter dissipates the active power excess, through a chopper, so these dc/dc converters keep the active power balance of the complete system. The designed control architecture assures that, in steady state, the rms values of the voltages and the frequency remain at the their reference values. The simulated results show a good performance of the system under different loading conditions.
