Optimization of Wind Power Generator Frame by Using Cae Software

K Pradeep Reddy, K Venkatesh, J Narsaiah


The generator considered in this project has a production capacity of 10KW and weight is 180Kgs. The weight of the generator is considered as static load. A static load of 180Kgs is applied on the generator frame from the centre point of the generator. Generally, generator has lot of movable parts. Due to these parts, generator has random vibrations. These vibrations can affect the generator. So, to check whether the generator frame is withstanding for these vibrations, generator is analyzed for dynamic analysis. Analysis was done by using Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) package.

This project involves 3d modelling and analysis of the generator frame. At first, 3d modelling of the generator frame was done using NX-CAD software. Next, the 3d model is imported to ANSYS software to perform analysis on the generator frame. From static analysis, deflections and stresses are documented for static load. Dynamic analysis is done on the generator frame to check the structure behaviour for random vibrations. Modifications are done to optimize the generator frame for above loads
