AN ELECTRICALLY-CONTROLLED AXIAL-FLUX PERMANENT MAGNET GENERATOR


Abstract

The paper presents a design of an axial-flux surface-mounted permanent-magnet generator with flux-regulation capability. Based on three-dimensional finite-element analysis (3D-FEA), the no-load air-gap magnetic flux density, flux-control characteristics, cogging torque and electromagnetic torque of the machine have been predicted. Simulation results of no-load back-EMF waveforms performed at different DC control coil excitations have been compared with experimental results.
