This paper presents the design procedure, analysis and experimental verification of a 2 kW in-runner permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG) with radial magnetic flux for wind power applications (WPAs). The generator is designed via developed CAD-procedure and design interface in which the basic parameters of the generators are calculated respectively. Subsequently, the effectiveness of the interface is supported by applying a coupled transient electromagnetic procedure using finite element method and the design and simulation principles presented apply primarily to the prototype model. Moreover, the test results of the prototype permanent-magnet generator are analyzed and compared with the calculated data and characteristics. The purposed model is particularly well suited for low-speed WPAs with a very low cogging torque. © 2013 Praise Worthy Prize S.r.l. - All rights reserved.
