Integrated generator for use in aircraft engines

University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

Abstract: In this paper the use of integrated generators for airplane engines is examined. In order to accomplish this goal a combination of MatLab with FEMM and ANSYS Maxwell is used to make incrementally more and more detailed analysis of the integrated generator concept. After numerous numerical experiments and simulations it is concluded that the implementation of an integrated generator on the proposed RM400 engines should be possible, as well as contributing to overall improved fuel economy for the aircraft. However further analysis of the following is needed before further steps can be taken in the implementation of this concept: - Optimization of design (power and weight) - Structural solidity - Heat transfer and cooling - Power electronics - Maintenance - Safety - Economics and manufacturing logistics
