A wind turbine for generating electrical power from wind energy includes a turbine rotor mounted for rotation in wind, and having multiple blades for converting energy in the wind into rotational energy. A generator is coupled with said turbine rotor such that said turbine rotor drives said generator. The generator has a stationary air core armature that is located in a magnetic airgap between two generator rotor portions. The generator rotor portions have circumferential arrays of multiple alternating polarity permanent magnets attached to ferromagnetic back irons such that the permanent magnets drive magnetic flux back and forth between each rotor portion and through the stationary air core armature. The stationary air core armature has multiple phase windings of multiple individually insulated strand conductor wire that is wound with two separate portions including an active length portion and an end turn portion. The end turn portion is located outside the magnetic airgap and traverses predominately circumferentially, and the active length portion is located in the magnetic airgap and traverses predominately non-circumferentially and perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic airgap. The end turn portion has a thickness that is greater than the thickness of said active length portion in the direction of said magnetic airgap. AC voltage is induced in the multiple phase windings as the turbine rotor rotates.

Electric rotating machine

For achieving small-sizing and high efficiency by improving heat radiation of coils, and further for simple-construction to be easily disassembled, thereby being environment-friendly from a view point of recycling, an electric rotating machine comprising: a stator 1a being constructed by inserting coils 10a into slots 11 of a stator core 2a; an outer frame 4 being divided into a plurality thereof, so as to cover periphery of the stator core of said stator; a pair of bearing holder portions 6a and 6b, each having a fitting portion 35a or 35b to be fitted into an inner diameter reference surface 25a at both end portions of said stator and being provided with a bearing 8a or 8b at an axial center portion thereof, and being attached at both sides of said stator core so as to cover coil end portions dropping out at both sides of said stator; a squeezing mechanism (30, 32a, 32b, 6a, 6b) fixing the outer frame at an outer periphery of the stator core, by a wedge function between each of the bearing holder portions and the outer frame due to a squeezing function of attaching the each of said pair of bearing holder portions at both sides of said stator core; and a rotor 3 being formed with an escaping portion for escaping from an outer diameter of a portion opposing to a fitting portion of each of said bearing holder portion, rotatably positioned within said stator core.

Winding wedge retention to maintain coil form

InactiveUS6113024AMinimizes coil movementEliminates and at least minimizes coil insulation breakdownWindingsMagnetic circuit rotating partsSystems designEngineering
A winding wedge retention system designed to maintain coil form includes a rotor (21) having a plurality of rotor poles (24), a coil (20) wound on one of the rotor poles (24), a V-shaped support wedge (22) positioned between adjacent rotor poles (24, 24) and that is adapted to support the coil (20), and a second wedge (26) that is positioned between and adjacent to the coil (20) and the rotor pole (24) on which the coil (20) is wound. The second wedge (26), in the presence of centrifugal loads, maintains a constant shape of the coil (20) and also maintains a constant position of the coil (20) relative to a position of the support wedge (22). A winding wedge retention system for the entire rotor includes, in addition to the rotor (21) itself and coils (20) wound on each of the rotor poles (24), plural V-shaped support wedges (22) positioned between each adjacent pair of rotor poles (24) and plural dove-tail shaped wedges (26) that are positioned between and adjacent to each of the coils (20) and rotor poles (24). The dove-tail wedges (26) are adapted to move toward the adjacent supports (22) in the presence of centrifugal loads thus maintaining a constant shape and position of the coils (20) relative to the position of the support wedges (22).

High efficiency electro-mechanical energy conversion device

An Electro-Mechanical Energy Conversion (EMEC) device and a method of electro-magnetically converting electrical energy to mechanical energy and electrical energy. The EMEC device comprises a stator; a rotor; a direct current power source; a commutator, and flourescent lamps acting as a non-linear, capacitive, voltage-limiting load. Four armature coils of a first magnetic polarity are concentrically mounted on a first side of the outer surface of a non-magnetic cylindrical stator casing, and four armature coils of an opposite polarity are concentrically mounted on an opposite side of the stator casing. Each coil is wound with an average of 6,650 turns of 34 AWG gauge teflon-coated wire. The rotor is constructed of non-magnetic material, and is rotationally mounted in the stator casing. A plurality of neodymium iron-boron permanent magnets are circumferentially mounted on the rotor. The magnets on a first side of the rotor are mounted with a first outward polarity, and the magnets on an opposite side of the rotor are mounted with an opposite outward polarity. The power source is connected to the coils and produces an output of 0-5,000 volts at 30 to 40 milliamperes maximum. The flourescent lamps are connected to the coils for rapidly dumping magnetic energy from the coils when the polarity is reversed. The commutator reverses the polarity of the first and second coils every 180 DEG of rotor rotation, and guides the magnetic energy from the coils to the load.
