GE increases the efficiency of wind turbines through the use of superconducting magnets

2015-12-28 00:00:00

unit technical developments GE Global Research, the company owned by General Electric Company NYSE: GE announced the first phase of a two-year project worth $ 3 million project is carried out for the Ministry of Energy of the United States and aims to create a new generation of generator-driven < strong> Wind Turbines , which will create large-scale wind power station capacity of 10-15 MW.


wind turbines used in MRI superconducting magnets for producing large amounts of energy even at a lower cost of electricity generation.

basic idea is to reduce the size and weight of the generator, as well as reducing speed and increasing torque. Application of technology of superconducting magnets to reduce weight by stronger magnetic fields produced by superconducting windings in the excitation as well as through the possible weight reduction of iron in the superconducting generator.
