In this paper, we investigate the electromagnetic performance of wind power generators with outer permanent magnet rotors on the bases of variations in the turbine characteristics over nominal wind speeds by employing various proposed analytical techniques. We have employed an electromagnetic analytical method for calculating electrical parameters such as back EMF constant, synchronous inductance, and phase resistance on the basis of the magnetic field distribution calculated in previous studies. Moreover, curve fitting and finite element methods have been used for core losses analysis, while the d-q model employing the coordinate transformation theorem has been used for analyzing generation performances. To validate our techniques, we compared the performance results obtained using our analytical methods with those obtained by experimental setups. In addition, we propose optimized wind turbine characteristics for our model from the analysis results of electromagnetic performances obtained by considering three types of turbine characteristics.
