PM Advantages and Challenges of External Rotor PM Generators in Wind Energy

EMWorks webinar-2320The upcoming webinar, on Thursday 25 May and in two sessions at 15:00 and 20:00, will use EMWorks2D tools from EMWorks to explore and assess the performance of a model representing an external rotor PMSG. The simulation results will be compared with the intended design parameters to verify the accuracy and efficiency of the design.

External rotor permanent magnet synchronous generators (PMSG) have several advantages in wind turbines. First, the design of the outer rotor allows for a larger diameter and shorter length, resulting in higher torque and power output. In addition, the use of permanent magnets eliminates the need for a separate excitation system, reducing maintenance and increasing efficiency. The high pole count and outer rotor design allows direct connection to the wind turbine blades, eliminating the need for a gearbox and further reducing maintenance costs. These advantages make external rotor PMSGs an attractive choice for wind turbine power generation, especially in applications where efficiency, reliability and maintenance requirements are critical factors.
