Starting performance of synchronous generators and the time in which the machine comes into steady state are important. Hence, there is much research carried out on the starting performance of synchronous generators. The more the power of the synchronous generator is, the more important its starting performance becomes. In the present study, through Ansoft Maxwell program, the design of 2.2 MW and 6600v synchronous generators was made, and then two-dimensional static magnetic analyses and two-dimensional transient analyses were performed. In this way, we were able to investigate starting losses, period of coming to steady state, phase currents and instantaneous torque values of the synchronous generators. 


Key words: Salient pole synchronous generator, 2D magnetic analysis, transient analysis, wind generator design.
