It is believed that the size of wind turbines on offshore wind farms can be increased up to 10 MW. A superconducting synchronous generator (SCSG) is advantageous to a large-scale wind turbine because of its weight and volume. In this paper, a grid-connected large-scale superconducting wind turbine generator is analysed under varying wind speeds. A 10 MW SCSG is designed by the finite elements method (FEM). The parameters of the designed SCSG are calculated and applied to a modeled SCSG in a Power System Computer Aided Design/Electromagnetic Transients including DC. The electric and dynamic performances of superconducting wind turbine generators are analysed in this simulation. This paper shows the effectiveness of the grid-connected superconducting wind turbine generator for offshore applications.
