5 5 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Technical Approach - Tasks 1.Assess resources tidal and river for: –proper sizing –form factor –power rating –ambient operating conditions. 2.Determine appropriate topology 3.Electromagnetic circuit design 4.Mechanical design 5.Investigate Manufacturing Requirements 6.Cost Analysis 7.Commercialization and future research

6 6 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Technical Approach – Key Issues MHK Generators - where wind generators were in ‘70s Eliminate gearbox (Rim Mount Design) Get topology, sizing, power and form factor right Components designed/manufactured by industry Work with multiple turbines Design for harsh marine environment Coupling method

7 7 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Schedule & Budget Schedule Initiation date:11/1/2010 Planned completion date: 10/31/2011 Design Completed, report published, paperwork complete Budget: On schedule, on budget, additional cost share provided Budget History FY2009FY FY2011 DOECost-shareDOECost-share N/A $160K$54K

8 8 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Project - Preliminary Differences between renewable and conventional generation Appreciate difference between power, energy and nameplate capacity Differences between tidal and inland stream flows Design for common siting conditions not extreme / rare Lessons learned from wind Many different turbine styles, sizes, & stages of development Review and understanding of MHK state of art Understanding of regulatory, permitting, siting Acceptance of 35% efficiency Baseline estimate of “realistic” siting conditions

23 23 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Resource Assessment Cont. Depth: 10 – 30 m (Top: Nav Clearance, Bottom: Permitted Sites) Salinity: 35 ppt Temp: F, 2-32 C

24 24 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Analysis of turbines Proprietary data was shared with FFE based upon completed NDAs. Data included CAD, test data, estimated torque / speed, TSR, etc. This data was used to design a generator with a 2 meter diameter rated at 20 kW to connect to a 3m x 7m GHT, or an equivalent FloDesign turbine which presents a 5 m diameter to the flow. This is approximately 21 m^2 in cross section. Comparable dynamic performance…

25 25 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Selection of appropriate topology Induction or Synchronous? (Field winding not reasonable) AF, RF, or TF? Gearbox for speed? (Rim mount) Iron core or coreless (magnet use and detent torque) Pole Count: more poles more voltage more power (balancing act) Cost and manufacturability Selection: RFPM Synchronous as wind is evolving to.

26 26 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Gearbox Issue Shaft seals are an issue, bow wakes, velocity fluctuations we selected rim mount speed enhancement with 2 m diameter

27 27 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Generator Topology AF or RF

28 28 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov What others do…

29 29 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov What others do… Air core? Transverse Flux? Weight reduction? Increased magnet use

30 30 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov What others do… SmartMotor Claims: concentrated windings, higher fill factor, higher efficiency It appears from the description that this generator uses large gauge wire, hand inserted.

31 31 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov What others do… VIEG – Variable Input Electrical Generator This appears to be a “stacked generator.” They appear to be dynamically connecting windings in series at low speed and parallel at high. This appears to be quite costly, like purchasing multiple generators for one site.

32 32 | Wind and Water Power Programeere.energy.gov Our generator Radial flux, permanent magnet, synchronous, three phase, rim mount (2 meter diameter, 20 kW in 2 m/sec flow) A conventional, buildable, cost effective approach capable of coupling to multiple turbine designs.
