Design and Analysis of a Brushless Flux Switching Generator for Rooftop Wind Turbines
A new three-phase dual-rotor middle-stator brushless flux switching generator (FSG) for 400 Hz diesel-driven aircraft ground power units. For the proposed machine, both field and armature windings are hosted in the stator in such a way that not only fulfils brushless structure, but also realizes the flux switching function. Moreover, both windings have non-overlapping concentrated windings to shorten the end-windings and reduce the copper losses. In the meantime, the rotor has only slots without any active parts. First, the machine detailed design is provided, and its performance is analysed using finite element method. Also, a selection topology of both stator and rotor pole arcs is carried out, targeting maximum generated EMF, minimum harmonic content, and minimum cogging torque. Then, a prototype is implemented and experimented to confirm the feasibility of the proposed machine.
