Wind electric system – design and analyses tools

Some useful links to help you design small wind turbine:

  • OpenAFPM modeling tools –
    MagnAFPM can be used for designing a generator for a specific set of rotor blades and a specific set of permanent magnet dimensions
    UserAFPM can be used to validate the performance of a specific generator geometry by performing a finite element analysis
    OptiAFPM uses the particle swarm optimization (PSO) to optimize the dimensions of the permanent magnets used in the generator design for a specific set of rotor blades
  • WindLabDAT data analysis tool
  • WindSYS design tool
