Abstract:

A newly developed generator called the Acylic generator is discussed. It is a low voltagehigh current dc generator. A turbo-generator power plant using this acylic generator and including a 4000 KW auxiliary generator is shown. It is pointed out that an acylic generator can be used in a submarine for main propulsion power, but to fulfill the requirements of the Low Maintenance Machinery project, a design study should be initiated to unearth every fact of its design, construction, application and operation.
