Compact direct drive generator for wind turbines

This patented generator type does not need permanent magnets, yet is more compact than current direct drives (TRV from 3 times higher with respect to permanent magnet direct drive generators to 6 times higher than electrically excited direct drive generators). These are preliminary research results.
