Permanent Magnet Out – Superconductor In
The EcoSwing consortium has taken the new compact and lightweight electric generator to its test site in Thyborøn. At the GC-1 turbine the previously installed permanent magnet generator and the superconducting device swapped places. Jesper Hansen of Envision Energy commented "In the wind turbine we can prove that this technology is ready and it is mature. This will push the thinking around how to make electrical machines into new directions.". This 4th in series video clip will give you an insight into the state of this exciting project.
