Description

A variable intensity electromagnet generator will be developed. The generator will be modified to a multi pole system using variable-intensity electro-magnets rather than permanent magnets. A control system will monitor rotor speed and change the electro-magnet intensity according to actual rotor speed. This modulation of electro-magnet performance in real time will enable optimal variable-speed efficiency and performance regardless of rotor speed. This innovative generator and control system will be incorporated in a 50kW in-pipe hydroelectric system optimized to incorporate the new technology. This will be the first scale-up step from the existing 10kW system. The next step will be the development of a 100 - 300kW system, to be incorporated in a wind turbine which will be modified to incorporate the generator and control system.
