GE Global Research, the technology development arm of the General Electric Company (GE), has announced it has begun work on the first phase of a 2-year, US$ 3 million project from the US Department of Energy to develop a direct drive wind turbine generator that could support large-scale wind applications in the 10-15MW range.

The generator project will have two phases. Phase I will focus on developing a conceptual design and evaluating the economic, environmental, and commercial factors associated with it. Phase II will explore the potential commercialization of the technology. GE researchers are applying 30+ years of experience developing superconducting magnets for MRI systems to design the new generator for large-scale wind power.
