This paper presents the results of an investigation into the subsynchronous resonance (SSR) instability of deep-bar induction motors when supplied through series capacitor compensated feeders. As in a companion study published by the same authors on single-cage induction motors, useful physical insight into SSR instability is obtained from a simple equivalent circuit analysis and the discrete Fourier transforms (DFTs) of some of the transient waveforms. The main contribution of this paper is to show that, provided the stator resistance is below some minimum value, an unstable region will exist between an upper and lower resonant speed, as in the case of a single-cage motor.
