Benefits and challenges of a grid coupled wound rotor synchronous generator in a wind turbine application

by , November 13, 2013

There is a need for very large wind turbines in order to meet the increasing demands from renewable energy sources. A directly coupled synchronous generator with a variable transmission is one of the options for very large wind turbines. This wind turbine topology benefits from harmonic free, transformer free, better fault current contribution and greater reliability. However, there are challenges associated with the topology, such… Learn More
