Flooded Generators have been proposed as a possible solution to eliminate the risks due to the seal failure, and improve cooling in tidal stream turbine generators. In a flooded generator, the stator-rotor gap is filled with the seawater; this poses a serious corrosion risk to the material inside the generator. For this reason, a can or a...

Permanent magnet machines with fractional slot windings are popular because of their shorter end windings, low cost and ease of manufacturing. On the other hand, fractional slot machines have higher eddy current losses in the rotor magnets and sleeve. An accurate calculation of these losses usually involves a time-stepped finite-element analysis...

This paper aims at assessing the potential of partially superconducting generators for 10 MW direct-drive wind turbines by investigating their performance for a very wide range of excitation currents. Performance indicators such as shear stress and efficiency and other generator characteristics are compared for 12 different generator topologies....

Direct drive high temperature superconducting (HTS) wind turbine generators have been proposed to tackle challenges for ever increasing wind turbine ratings. Due to smaller reactances in HTS generators, higher fault currents and larger transient torques could occur if sudden short circuits happen at generator terminals. In this paper, a finite...

The brushless doubly-fed induction machine (DFIM) has great potential as a variable-speed generator for wind turbine applications. This special machine has a richer space-harmonic spectrum due to its special nested-loop rotor construction compared with conventional induction machines. It may result in higher iron losses, higher torque ripple and...

Innovative drive trains targeted at 10-20 MW offshore turbines are investigated in the INNWIND.EU project in order to determine the impact on the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) resulting when installed in the ,North sea at 50 m of water [1]. The two main technologies studied are superconducting direct drive (SCDD)[2] and the magnetic pseudo...

Permanent-magnet machines with fractional slot concentrated windings are easy to manufacture. Their popularity therefore is steadily increasing. Without a proper design, however, the induced eddy-current losses in the solid rotor get rather high. The modeling and the prediction of eddy-current losses for these machines are thus very important...

In this paper, the brushless DFIM based wind turbine drive-train topology is compared to the DFIG based and PM generator based drive-train topologies, that are most commonly applied in modern wind turbines. The comparison will be based on a 3:2MW case study wind turbine. By using FE based multi-objective optimization, optimized generator designs...

The European Academy of Wind Energy (eawe), representing universities and institutes with a significant wind energy programme in 14 countries, has discussed the long-term research challenges in wind energy. In contrast to research agendas addressing short- to medium-term research activities, this eawe document takes a longer-term perspective,...

Availability is an important factor to be considered when designing wind turbine generator systems. The quest for increasing availability is based on the following five design approaches - design for component reliability, active control for reliability, design for fault tolerance, prognostics, and design for maintainability. This paper reviews...

Reducing weight of off-shore wind turbine nacelles is currently a key driver of innovation within the wind turbine industry. Weight reduction will not only lead to smaller loads and thus smaller towers of the turbine, but also reduce logistic costs during the turbine’s installation. This holds even more so for off-shore turbines, the costs...

During the past decades, superconducting electrical machines have become more suitable to replace conventional iron based designs, because of their lower weight and higher torque density. These properties make them good candidates for use in More Electric Aircraft (MEA). Especially helicopter propulsion systems could benefit from the increased...

High speed fault tolerant permanent magnet machines have strong asynchronous airgap harmonics, making them susceptible to rotor eddy-current losses. These losses can be reduced by using novel high resistivity materials like plastic bonded magnets and carbon fiber reinforced retaining sleeves. This paper examines by numerical studies the...
