Abstract
The project will develop a novel generator that will allow the simultaneous generating of regulated voltages and currents. The new generator will use a newly developed magnetic design technology that can yield high output power and efficiency with conventional magnet materials such as ferrite or ALNICO magnets. The power will be generated by a single generator that will simultaneously generate AC and DC output power. The technology is already in the development phase and has been preliminarily validated through computer models and simulations along with confirming laboratory experiments resulting in virtually no technical risks for the development. The projected performance will be up to 15,000 W with 5 kVA AC power and 400 Amperes of DC power at a total weight of 6.5 kg in an air-cooled package for the generator, inverter and regulator controls. The proposed development will have many applications both for military as well as commercial applications..
