This paper presents a simple, robust excitation control system for synchronous generator using direct instantaneous voltage control(DIVC) method DIVC method can operate as maximum dynamics of power conversion system without any control gains such as PID controller. And the transient overshoot of generator voltage can be suppressed with a simple time constant. The proposed control scheme is verified by the computer simulation and experimental results in prototype generation system.
