Comparison of Interior, V-Shaped, Surface Mounted Permanent Magnet and Permanent Magnet Assisted Synchronous Reluctance Generators Used as a Wave Energy Converter Generator
Paper in proceeding, 2018

In this work, interior mounted, v-shaped, surface mounted permanent magnet generators and a permanent magnet assisted synchronous reluctance generator are used as wave energy converter generators and are compared, both from performance and economical perspectives. The materials and material volumes are kept constant, as well as the control strategy. The torque-speed performances, power losses and the efficiencies are compared. The economical comparison is based on a Life Cycle Cost analysis. The favorable option regarding the performance and the life cycle cost is presented
