This paper presents an electromagnetic design of a permanent magnet superconducting wind power generator with different stator teeth structures and armature winding arrangements. The main contribution of this paper is that a novel stator configuration is proposed, which is beneficial for superconducting machines. The topology of tapering poles makes it possible for the machine to carry larger current without severe magnetic saturation in the stator teeth. Meantime, the distributed arrangement of wires in the stator slot can reduce the ac loss in the same output power condition. Finite element analysis with commercial software is used to support these results.
