The use of Magnetic Coupler instead of Lever Actuated Friction Clutch for Wind Plant
Keywords:Electromagnetic modelling, magnetic devices, permanent magnets, wind farms
AbstractThe purpose of the paper is to analyze the possibility to use a magnetic coupler instead of lever actuated friction clutch, which is used in the wind plants between the shaft from turbine and the shaft from motor. There are analysed the construction parameters of magnetic coupler to obtain the necessary coupler’s mechanical torque. The paper includes the calculation of a mechanical torque, applying program QuickField. In QuickField there is calculated magnetic field using finite element method (FEM).
