The objectives of this contractual effort were to Design and develop a 100 KW permanent magnet generator PMG to determine the applicability of samarium cobalt to excitation in a high speed generator Design and develop rotor to contain the magnets Investigate handling techniques for the samarium cobalt magnets Gain test experience and data for possible future use of the machine in a direct-connected turbine-alternator set Develop a hot isostatic pressure HIP weldment as a back-up to the EB welded rotor ring. The PMG design generally followed the preliminary design of the feasibility study. Major problems were encountered on the present program to the initial EB and HIP weldments, but these yielded to an adequate rotor weldment in the end that was capable of rotation to at least 61,300 rpm. This weldment was used to fabricate a complete rotor for the PMG. Funding limitations prevented the completion of the 100 KW PMG and most of its major subassemblies.
