Below you will find the details about our presentation at EWEA 2013:

Session title: 'Battle of Drivetrains'

Date: Monday, 04 February 2013

Time: 14:00 – 15:30

Presentation title: Design and Performance Analysis of a 5 MW Medium-Speed Brushless DFIG Drivetrain

Presenter: Peter Tavner, Wind Technologies Ltd

Presentation abstract:

This presentation discusses the design and performance analysis of a 5 MW medium-speed Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (Brushless DFIG) in a wind turbine drivetrain. A thorough comparison has been performed with alternative drivetrain designs including high and medium speed geared and direct drive architectures. The medium-speed Brushless DFIG in combination with a simplified one or two stage gearbox promises a low-cost, low-maintenance and reliable drivetrain for wind turbine applications.
