Methodology for designing megawatt-scale yokeless and segmented armature (YASA) generators for wind turbines

Abstract:

This thesis develops design methodologies for megawatt(MW)-scale yokeless and segmented armature (YASA) generators for wind turbine applications. The methodologies include the electromagnetic, the structural and the thermal designs of a YASA generator.

The design process starts with developing an analytical method to generate preliminary machine designs for a megawatt-scale YASA generator. This analytical approach considers both electromagnetic and structural aspects of a generator,...
