Abstract

A design study of a 10 MW direct drive wind turbine generator based on MgB2 superconducting wires is presented and the cost of the active materials of the generator is estimated to be between 226 €/kW and 84 €/kw, which is lower than the threshold values of 300 €/kW of the INNWIND.EU project. A nacelle structure with a front-mounted generator is presented for further investigation of the integration of such a superconducting generator into offshore turbines with power ratings considerably larger than 10 MW.
