Synchronous machines Design of synchronous machines

Cylindrical Rotor Pole

A synchronous machine consists of a stator and a rotor. The stator is the stationary part of the machine with the three-phase windings to produce the rotating field as described in the previous section. The casing is made of Figure 5.23 Cross-section through a Synchronous Machine Left Cylindrical Rotor, Right Salient-pole Rotor Figure 5.23 Cross-section through a Synchronous Machine Left Cylindrical Rotor, Right Salient-pole Rotor stacked sheets containing the three-phase windings of the...

Wind turbines with horizontal rotor axis System components

Wind Turbine Blade Azimuth Angle

Most wind turbines generating electricity today are horizontal axis machines. It is predominantly medium-sized enterprises that have pushed wind market developments. Wind power plants have reached a high technical level and Figure 5.12 Section through the Stall-controlled TW600 Wind Generator 600 kW Change-pole Asynchronous Generator, 43 m Rotor Diameter, 50-70 m Hub Height Figure 5.12 Section through the Stall-controlled TW600 Wind Generator 600 kW Change-pole Asynchronous Generator, 43 m...
