Abstract:

This report summarizes work completed for the Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory in Phase I of a program entitled Superconducting Rotor Research. The objective of this program is to incorporate new materials in the design of an airborone, 20 MW, high-speed, superconducting generator. The rotor of the generator will be constructed and its current density demonstrated. The Phase I work consisted of a sizing study to select the machine configuration and dimensions, a survey of superconducting materials, and selection of the superconductor for this application.
