In order to verify the theoretical work considering very low speed permanent magnetized generators for marine current power conversion, an experimental setup is under construction. Earlier 2-dimensional Finite Element Method (FEM) simulations have been performed and in this paper focus is on the practical considerations regarding the rotor construction of the generator as well as the total system configuration with motor, frequency transformer and generator. A rotor configuration with milled grooves for magnet fixation along with a power feedback option with a resistive load is chosen for the first experimental setup.
