Generators for wind turbines

ABB has delivered over 35 000 generators for wind turbines during the past 30 years, corresponding to about 30 GW of power.


We make generators for all drivetrain concepts, gearless or geared, both doubly-fed and full converter type and for all power and voltage levels up to 20 MW and 15 kV. Most offshore turbines use ABB generators since 1991.

ABB introduced doubly-fed generators in 1997, direct drive permanent magnet (PM) generators in 1999, followed by the first integrated medium speed product in 2000 and the first high speed PM generator in 2003.
