In this presentation the squirrel cage induction generator is proposed for a direct-drive wind turbine. The squirrel cage induction generator is proposed for direct drive wind turbines, because of its simple and rugged construction and because it does not require rare earth elements, which are a key element in permanent magnets and might become difficult to source affordably in the future.
