Design of PM Generator for Avertical Axis Wind Turbine (Electrical/Electronics Project)

The task in this project is to design a generator for a vertical axis wind turbine with power rated to 20kW at a wind speed of 10m/s. The design has just a few moving parts, which decreases maintenance costs and increases its toughness. The turbine absorbs wind from Continue reading

Object-Oriented Modelling of a Wind Power Plant in Modelica and Analysis of Loads on Blade Bearings (Mechanical Project)

Within this study a strongly simplified yet complete, component-based numerical model for load analysis of a horizontal wind turbine is built up. The model is written in the open-source, object-orientated and equation-based modelling language Modelica and designed in Continue reading
