      Akuru, Udochukwu Bola; Kamper, Maarten J. (Energy Research Centre, 2015)
      It is believed that wind energy is growing at a very rapid rate, especially in the last few years. When compared with other sources of renewable energy in the energy portfolio, it becomes evident that the bulk is wind ...
    • Design optimisation and performance evaluation of flux switching machines for geared medium-speed wind generator drives 

      Akuru, Udochukwu Bola (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2017-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: As wind turbines become large, the cost of energy increases because of the employed drivetrain (geared or direct–drive). Consequently, non–conventional geared medium–speed (MS) generators are gaining ...
