This study deals with analyzing, designing and fabricating of a 1 kW PM synchronous generator for gearless and direct drive off-grid wind turbines. Performance characteristics of this generator have been calculated analytically in collaboration with dynamic transient coupled-field analysis. All specifications of the PMSG have been investigated and optimized by using finite element method and parametric multi-criterion design approach. At the end of research, a prototype has been fabricated based on the optimized dimensions. Furthermore, the analytical calculations present along with experimental studies carried out for different shaft speeds and load levels. The comparative experimental studies have verified effectiveness of the optimized designing and dynamic co-simulations.
