The electromagnetic study presented models a saturated synchronous machine for the Converter-Machine-Command (CMC) set simulation. The proposed method is based on a modified Park model (Garrido and De Jaeger Model: GDJ model [1,2]) when calculating the GDJ model laws and the GDJ model parameters using a field computation based on the Finite Element Method (FEM). The first model (GDJ model) is modified in accordance to the field results and a 4.8% improvement has been estimated. The model validity is obtained when comparing the computed and measured reactances. The improved model is elaborated in order to be introduced into the saturated machine algorithm to simulate the CMC set. In comparison with the model based on experiments, the proposed one avoids complex tests on high power range synchronous machines. On the other hand, this study reveals Potier parameter variations with the saturation state whereas the conventional methods consider it as a constant value. Finally we develop the saturated synchronous machine model associated with the converter.
