Abstract : Design investigations were conducted to determine the optimum configuration for a segmented magnet motor and generator. Candidates included slotted rotor machines, iron conductor machines, series connected machines and solid-state switched machines. The selected candidate generator, a series connected machine was carried to concept design. Experimental work to verify current switching performance was conducted. (Author)
