In this paper, the thermal performance of a 10-MW-class wind turbine-based high-temperature superconducting (HTS) synchronous generator is studied. The proposed generator is designed and modeled through a finite-element method (FEM), and the generator losses, including iron losses and electrical losses, are obtained. As the output power substantially… CONTINUE READING
