Abstract:

Mobile production of electric power requires generators that are compact, lightweight, efficient, and reliable. Although standard generator approaches that use radial magnetic fields are very mature, they are also larger and heavier than desired. In response, we propose to develop an axial-flux permanent-magnet generator for advanced applications with demanding requirements. The resulting device will be extremely compact, lightweight, efficient, and reliable. Creare is an ideal candidate for this project because we have focused intense effort on the development of advanced high-speed turbomachines, alternators, motors, and power conversion electronics for challenging aerospace and terrestrial applications. During Phase I, we will optimize design trades, complete a preliminary design, and estimate production costs for our generator system. We will then fabricate and test a high-fidelity prototype generator system during Phase II.
