Abstract
Generator and motor systems with high power density are needed as watercraft, aircraft, and land vehicles evolve toward more electric designs. In response, we propose to develop a system that operates at extremely high speed to provide ultra-high power density. The resulting system will be compact, lightweight, efficient, robust, and reliable. Our team is ideal for this project because we have focused intense effort on the development of advanced high-speed turbomachines, alternators, motors, and power electronics for many challenging aerospace and terrestrial applications. During the Phase I project, we will optimize design trades, create a preliminary design, conduct fabrication trials, and estimate production costs. We will then fabricate and test a prototype system during Phase II.
