This paper treats the autonomous induction generator as a two-phase oscillator and compares it with another one, the very simple and well-known LC resonant circuit. As a result, an original explanation of the excitation process of the induction generator is presented. Furthermore, it is shown that the autonomous induction generator could be excited without capacitors by switching, in a suitable way, its resistive load in and out in the stator circuit.
