Eleon’s direct drive wind turbine is based on a single-sided supported direct drive (SSDD) invention. The SSDD solves the challenging air gap problem of direct drive wind turbines with a pioneering and unique method. The permanent magnet generator is enclosed in the tubular main frame and fixed by a single main bearing to the front end of the main frame, where the stator is connected to the outer ring and the rotor to the inner ring of the bearing. The generator structure floats, i.e. the complete generator might be deflected but not the air-gap. The hub is also connected directly to the main bearing. With this design the main loads are led from the hub through the main bearing directly to the main frame and, in turn, from the main frame to the tower. The invention protects the generator against harmful off-axial loads that may lead to structural deformations and problems with the air-gap. Mainly torque is transferred to the generator. The invention allows for a significant reduction of the nacelle dimensions and mass.
