How to build a better wind turbine? GE finds inspiration in MRIs

GE’s superconducting machine design will use a novel architecture and cryogenic cooling to improve the reliability of the complete machine. Its proposed design aims for twice the torque density of competing technologies. It will also reduce dependence on the rare earth materials found today in all permanent magnet machines for wind. The larger power levels of these machines, coupled with their improved energy conversion efficiency, should lead to more favorable economies of scale.
