Abstract

We have performed a design study of a 10 kW superconducting slow rotating generator suitable for demonstration in a small scale wind turbine, where the drive train only consists of the turbine blades connected directly to the generator. The flux density in the superconducting rotor is chosen as B = 1 Tesla to be similar to the performance of permanent magnets and to represent a layout, which can be scaled up in future off-shore wind turbines. The proposed generator is a 8 pole synchronous machine based on race-track coils of high temperature superconducting tapes and an air cored copper stator enclosed in an iron shield.
