Title: ELECTRIC GENERATOR AND ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
An electric generator (23) for an electric power generation system includes a rotor (24) and a stator (25). A stationary ferromagnetic member (28) is positioned between the stator (25) and the rotor (24) to form a first air gap (27) and a second air gap (26) respectively. The stationary ferromagnetic member (28) is appropriately positioned such that an electromotive force is statically induced in the stator windings (253). Furthermore, to utilize a single magnetic flux to simultaneously generate an electromotive force and produce reluctance torque so that torque requirement from the prime mover is reduced thereby increasing efficiency. The generator (23) can be configured for either angular operation or linear operation and is operable as a single phase or multi phase generator. Furthermore an electric generation system (20) comprising such a generator (23) is provided.
