Abstract

A method for comparing the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of different superconducting drive trains is introduced. The properties of a 10 MW MgB$_{2}$ superconducting direct drive generator are presented in terms weight scaled to a turbine with a rotor diameter up of 280 m and the cost break down of the nacelle components. The partial load efficiency of the generator is evaluated for a constant cooling power of 0, 50 kW and 100 kW and the annual energy production is used to determine the impact on Levelized Cost of Energy.
