Abstract: A number of requirements are imposed upon the group of promising discrete mathematical models: a small sampling interval, the guaranteed asymptotic (Lyapunov) stability, explicit nature of numerical methods, and program and algorithmic optimization of calculations. The application of bilinear transformation to construct a discrete mathematical model of a synchronous electric machine with a turn-to-turn fault of the rotor winding is considered. This approach makes it possible to tackle a number of problems which arise when standard methods for solving a Cauchy problem are used—namely, nonstationarity of dynamical systems and influence of the integration error on the accuracy. A transfer from a system of differential equations, describing the physics of synchronous generator operation, to difference equations is considered. Based on the difference equations obtained, a structural scheme is composed which allows the mathematical model software to be implemented on the microcontroller without involving additional mathematical functions. The experimental testing of adequacy of the discrete mathematical model of a synchronous generator with a turn-to-turn fault is performed. The proposed approach can be used to solve problems on identification of turn-to-turn faults, where an adequate high-speed and stable model is necessary.
