U.K. company sees potential for 20MW offshore wind turbine within three years

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Recharge:Rare-earth-free permanent magnet generators (PMG) for offshore wind turbines with nameplates of 20MW are expected to be a reality “within three years,” following trials of a new-generation concept at the UK Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult facility.A 250kW version of the axial-flux design being developed by GreenSpur Wind, which uses ferrites – an iron-rich ceramic – for its magnets, would be part of a four-module 1MW unit that is foreseen to be scalable to a power rating roughly twice that of the biggest PMGs in service today.“It was our intention from the outset to design a generator that could be scaled for the next generation of offshore wind turbines,” said Hugh-Peter Kelly, GreenSpur’s head of technology and the inventors of the design. “The feedback that we’ve received is that current designs have known limitations and new concepts will be needed to deliver next generation 20MW offshore wind turbines.”GreenSpur is now moving forward with modelling for “significantly bigger, multi-megawatt generators”, with the target of designing a 12MW-plus concept for offshore turbine created by “stacking” three 4MW units in parallel.Replacing high-price rare-earth materials with ferrites – a waste material produced in steel-making – would cut the cost of PMG magnets from £40/kg ($50/kg) to around £1/kg, according to GreenSpur calculations, meaning the design could carve around 33% out of the capital cost of direct-drive generator, and so almost 5% off the price of a turbine.More: Offshore wind turbine 20MW generator ready ‘within three years’ U.K. company sees potential for 20MW offshore wind turbine within three yearslast_img read more
