FEMM Hub releases Technology White Paper on Offshore Wind Turbine Electrical Generators

1 November 2022

FEMM Hub researcher Abbas Mehrad Kazemi Amiri along with Kelly Tartt (both Strathclyde University) and Alasdair McDonald (University of Edinburgh) have produced a Technology White paper titled “Design and Manufacturing Challenges and Opportunities for Offshore Wind Turbine Electrical Generators”. 

Front page of the Technology White Paper.

The main objective of the short project, funded through the FEMM Hub was to produce a Technology White Paper, in which the existing and future challenges in cost-effective design and manufacturing of the next generation of direct-drive electrical generators in offshore wind turbine generator systems are identified, and corresponding opportunities to address those challenges are discussed. 

Mehrad et al. structured the white paper around the following three questions:
