This work presents the development of an offline standstill estimation technique, where the synchronous machine is locked at an arbitrary (but known) angle and is excited over a short period of time. The proposed time domain method requires few seconds of captured data in contrast to the well-known standard Standstill Frequency Response (SSFR) technique that could take more than 6 hours to conduct. This is based on nonlinear least squares estimation and algebraic elimination theory. The resulting algorithm is non-iterative where the data is used to construct polynomials that are solved for a finite number of roots which determine the electrical parameter values. Experimental results are presented showing the efficacy of the technique in furnishing the parameters of a salient pole synchronous machine.
