This paper discusses the problems concerned to thermal analysis of brushless PM synchronous generator for small-scale wind power applications. Thermal analysis is one of the most important processes that needs to be discussed, because of increasing interest in high efficiency and low weight of electrical machines. In this paper, analytical analysis has been performed. The prototype of the generator has been assembled and tested. The calculation and test results have been considered during this study.
