Abstract
High speed generators for future aircraft with dramatic improvements in power density while retaining or enhancing the functionality of current solutions. SatCon proposes to develop a new technology generator that up to 300kW in the same envelope as existing 50kW wound-field generators resulting in significantly greater power density. This will be achieved by transitioning from wound-field to hybrid PM generator technology with a novel voltage control design resulting in a compact generator control unit (GCU) with improved short circuit protection.
