In this study, a new claw-pole type transverse flux superconducting generator topology is presented. The machine has a stationary superconducting field winding, which eliminates electrical brushes and cryocouplers. The machine is specifically designed for low-speed high torque applications such as large offshore wind turbines. The proposed machine is robust and has a modular structure.
