PDF document Report on the design and manufacturing of an MgB2 coil for a 10MW wind generator

July 29, 2014 | Published by Iker Marino

SUPRAPOWER project aims to provide an important breakthrough in offshore wind industrial solutions by designing and validating an innovative, lightweight, robust and reliable 10 MW class MgB2 superconducting generator for offshore wind turbines. This generator is a Direct Drive AC salient poles synchronous machine, based on the use of MgB2 superconducting field coils. This report describes the desing and the manufacturing of one of this coils.
