Title: 3 kW High Performance Permanent Magnet Alternator
Agency: DOD
Contract: W15P7T-13-C-A404
Award Amount: $473,152.00
 

Abstract:

QM Power will design, build and test a high performance 3kW alternator using Parallel Path Magnetic Technology (PPMT) with no at risk rare earth magnet materials that is smaller, lighter and more efficient than the existing alternator that uses rare earth magnets. The Parallel Path Magnetic Technology combines magnets in parallel to drive high flux densities allowing high power density and high efficiency generators to be designed without rare earth magnets. QM Power will develop the high performance alternator and perform initial comprehensive testing with the application experience and guidance of DRS Fermont who designed and manufactures the existing high performance 3kW Tactical Quiet Generator unit. DRS Fermont will then perform the testing necessary to ensure the alternator is a high performance, robust replacement for the existing rare earth alternator. The program will build upon the phase I effort where QM Power designed a drop in replacement alternator without rare earth magnets and determined through analysis that the design can meet or exceed the targeted performance in a smaller and lighter package than the existing rare earth alternator.
