Abstract

This paper studies the feasibility of an alternative configuration for the electric power generation from low speed, large diameter, direct drive wind turbines up to 2.5 MW. The step-up low frequency transformer functions as an electrical gear. The transformer output is rectified and subsequently can be conditioned for connection to the grid or stand alone system. An active power filter is connected to the generator terminals to improve the performance and minimize generator torque ripple.
