%X This paper investigates the thermal issue of permanent
magnet synchronous generator which is frequently used in direct
drive gearless small-scale wind turbine applications. Permanent
Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) is designed with 2.5 kW
continuous and 6 kW peak power. Then considering generator
geometry, mechanical design of wind turbine is performed. Thermal
analysis and optimization is carried out considering all wind turbine
components to reach realistic results. This issue is extremely
important in research and development (R&D) process for wind
turbine applications.
