Q ~ How do I make an induction motor to start generating electricity?

A. Two ways; overdrive the motor (for example, drive a 1760 rpm motor over 1800 and then either…
1. Connect it to an AC sine signal (usually connect to the Grid at 50 or 60 Hz)¬†or…
2. Give the motor a jolt of DC current to ‘excite’ the motor’s magnetic fields and then have capacitors to ‘catch’ and recycle the signal. (This allows off-grid power production)
The RYEM book gives full details on how to do both of these techniques.
