A Novel Transverse Flux Generator in Direct-Driven Wind Turbines
2006 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
The higher specific torque and power density of atransverse flux permanent magnet (TFPM) machine in comparisonto a conventional machine makes it a promising direct-drivenwind turbine generator. The new topology presented in this paperis believed to have a better utilization of the available in thenacelle space. This would favor a reduced inactive weight of thegenerator and thus remove one of the major obstacles for largewind power units. The new topology is presented together withthe analytical model used in the design procedure. The analyticalmodel is used in a parametric study and the first conclusionsabout the performance of the new TFPM topology are drawn.
