Abstract : Research was continued on a program to determine the feasibility of the application of superconductor technology to the generation of electrical power by rotating electromagnetic devices. Since the anticipated use of such a generator is for long missions, a refrigerator with associated equipment must be part of the package. The work includes analytical and design studies of both electrical and mechanical components. The program may be divided into three parts: initial design study, supporting tests, and second-round design. Results of supporting tests and initial second-round design are discussed. (Author)
