This paper presents a new three-phase 12/8-pole doubly salient permanent-magnet (DSPM) machine for application to wind power generation. The key is to design and analyze the proposed DSPM generator, namely, the design of a new machine structure to achieve high power density and high robustness and the device of system operation to attain high efficiency. By using finite element analysis, the static characteristics of the proposed generator are given. Hence, the evaluation of system performances is conducted by computer simulation. Experimentation is also given to verify the validity of the proposed DSPM generator.
