Abstract:

This report summarizes the results of a design study of light weight, high power electrical generators in the 10 to 50 Megawatt range with output voltages up to 200 kV dc after rectification. Superconducting machines representing the latest technology were the focus of the study non-superconducting machines utilizing the most advanced conventional design technologies were also studied to develop comparable performance data. Turbine requirements and integration features were studied to assure compatibility. A separate analysis of MHD electrical generator designs was also carried out to highlight comparable performance data for that type of power source. Author
