Abstract

This paper presents a new type of hermetically sealed magnetically geared generator typology for a marine hydrokinetic application. The proposed magnetically geared generator is composed of two series connected magnetic gearbox stages with the second stage having an integrated stator. This paper focuses only on presenting the electromagnetic design for the first stage magnetic gearbox with a 5kW (at 40RPM) rating. A volumetric and mass torque density tradeoff analysis is utilized in order to arrive at a high torque density design. The designed magnetic gearbox uses a unique laminated flux concentration inner rotor and Halbach array outer rotor typology with a 6.67:1 gear ratio. A mechanical deflection analysis is performed to verify that the proposed magnetic gearbox is mechanically robust.
