The report presents the initial results of an analytical and test rig investigation to identify any limitations or problems relative to high-speed bearings and rotor dynamics for future, very small 3KW turboalternators. The results reported cover the following three tasks An analytical effort to select a representative 3KW turboalternator configuration in terms of the major aerodynamic and electrical rotating components An analytical effort to determine shaft-assemblybearing-system arrangements applicable to the 3KW turboalternator configuration A detailed design and initial test of a full scale test rig representative of the optimum shaft-assemblybearing-system arrangement for the 3KW turboalternator.
