Electromechanics (UT-CEM) has designed active magnetic bearing actuators for use in a 5 MW flywheel alternator with a 318 kg (700 lb), 20,000 rpm rotor. The flywheel alternator serves as a power supply for multiple systems on a military vehicle, including mobility load leveling and weapons systems. Because of continuous duty requirements, magnetic bearings(More)
Models of propulsion motors, generators, gas turbines, and power converters are used to determine weights and volumes, evaluate designs, and predict performance of power system components for all-electric navy ships. The finite element analysis method using 3D CAD models is used to validate designs and predict performance under prescribed constraints that(More)
