Abstract:

Electric motors and generators have a long history of development, from the first halting steps to the intensive development in the 20th and 21st century. Consequently, motors and generators have become mature technologies that only see incremental improvements in performance. To achieve more than just incremental improvements in such parameters as power density and efficiency, a radical departure from the present technology base is needed. In response to this current need, Infoscitex (IST) in collaboration with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), propose to develop a novel generator technology based on permanent magnet double Halbach arrays. It is anticipated that this approach will have significantly higher power density and efficiency compared to baseline systems. In the Phase I, IST and RPI will conduct a tradeoff study and perform preliminary testing on prototype components.
