A theoretical analysis has been conducted to develop a new transducer for use with fluidic generators. Evolving from this study is an E-frame generator that employs an improved magnetic circuit. This circuit consists of an E-shaped reed whose center member vibrates inside a stationary coil. Unlike previous models of the fluidic generator, the reed-coil assembly is positioned outside the magnet-pole piece assembly to reduce eddy current losses. The new design is capable of providing 0.180 W at 210 fps and 2.2 W at 1000 fps. The report describes the analysis made and evaluates the design parameters investigated during the study.
