Superconducting generators can help to reduce the cost of energy for large oshore
wind turbines, where the size and mass of the generator have a direct eect on the
installation cost. However, existing superconducting generators are not as reliable
as the alternative technologies. In this paper, a linear test prototype for a novel
superconducting claw pole topology, which has a stationary superconducting coil that eliminates the cryocooler coupler will be presented. The issues related to mechanical,electromagnetic and thermal aspects of the of the prototype will be presented.
