Offshore Wind

GE Renewable Energy Offshore Wind Project

The GE Renewable Energy Offshore Wind Project aims to develop a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective generator for offshore wind turbines. The current generators use rare-earth-based permanent magnets, which are expensive and have a negative environmental impact. The project proposes to use topology optimization method to design the permanent magnet for a simplified 2D outer rotor direct-drive wind power generator. The objective is to minimize the use of rare earth materials while maximizing the system magnetic energy and generating a target magnetic field in the air gap. The results demonstrate that the optimized design outperforms the original design in terms of efficiency and cost-effectiveness. This project is expected to contribute to the development of more environmentally friendly and cost-effective generators for offshore wind turbines.
