Cogging Torque Reduction in a Permanent Magnet Wind Turbine Generator: Preprint

Eduard Muljadi

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In this paper, we investigate three design options to minimize cogging torque: uniformity of air gap, pole width, and skewing. Although the design improvement is intended for small wind turbines, it is also applicable to larger wind turbines.
