Wind turbine direct drive

Wind energy is a very important element in the context of renewable energies. Modern wind turbines are often found in onshore or offshore applications. Gearless direct drive wind turbines are usually equipped with a ring generator. The generator is directly connected to the rotor and therefore the turbine does not need any gear. The generator is larger because of its low rotational speed. There are various concepts that differ in their structure, diameter, generator depth and the frequency of the generated current.
