High temperature superconducting (HTS) generator was promising in the wind power applications for its advantages in the weight, size and thermal stability against load fluctuations, especially in the “direct-driven” design. A 100 kW generator was proposed for the demonstration of the feasibility of using HTS in 10 MW wind turbine generators. The electromagnetic design and optimization of the rotor were done using finite element method (FEM). The excitation coil of the rotor was designed considering variable working conditions. According to the numerical results, a number of suggestions in the design and winding techniques of the superconducting rotor were proposed.
