This wind-generated electricity system is a large 5MW class generator specifically designed for Japan’s offshore environment. By utilizing the advantage of downwind turbines, the key design features the radiator of the cooling system located in front of the generator and the wind tunnel evolved the surrounding efficiently. By increasing the cooling capability with efficiently taking in the wind, the number of electronic components and the weight of generator are reduced. This has decreased the cost of transportation and installation and improved the safety concerns after the installation.
