ABSTRACT

High temperature superconductor (HTS) technology enables a significant reduction in the size and weight of MW-class generators for direct-drive wind turbine systems and reduce the cost of clean energy relative to conventional copper an permanent-magnet-based generators and gearbox. Using MAXWELL, we studied MW class superconducting synchronous machines. By comparison the weight, we concluded that HTS wind turbine with rotor iron is the heaviest and HTS wind turbine without rotor iron and stator teeth is the lightest. By comparison the flux density, HTS wind turbine without rotor iron is the least and HTS wind turbine without rotor iron and stator teeth is the largest. By comparison the cost, HTS wind turbine with rotor iron is the highest and the other two is almost the same. HTS wind turbine without rotor iron and stator teeth is the best type.
