Abstract

This paper presents a modern configuration of the power chain for a high power wind turbine machine using permanent magnet generator. A test setup is shown and device specifications are described. Advantages of using Direct Drive Generators are also shown. The discussion on the use of SRG is proposed. It provides a low speed solution of the wind turbine power converter design.
