A synchronous reluctance generator for a wind application-compared with an interior mounted permanent magnet synchronous generator
Paper in proceedings, 2014

This article presents a performance comparison of an interior mounted permanent magnet synchronous generator (IPMSG) with a synchronous reluctance generator (SynRG) with the same size for a wind application. It is found that using the same geometrical dimensions, a SynRG can convert 74 % of the power that an IPMSG can convert, while it has 80% of the IPMSG weight. Moreover it is found that the efficiency for the IMPSG is 99 % at rated power compared to 98.7 % for the SynRG.
