  • Patent number: 7759809
    Abstract: An apparatus and method are shown for improving the efficiency of motors, generators and machines by using a closed ferromagnetic frame upon which is mounted a plurality of solenoid coils. Two of the solenoid coils are wired together so that they act as one in a closed wiring circuit. An associated armature assembly includes a carousel which carries additional solenoid coils and is rotated through an opening provided in an extension to the closed frame. The individual solenoid coils located on the carousel supply power to the two original solenoid coils on the ferromagnetic frame giving the basic circulation system amplification each time a solenoid enters the electric/magnetic field created by the frame uprights.

  • Patent number: 7683517
    Abstract: A method for mounting coil onto stator for rotary electric machine. The method includes forming coil pieces by winding wire with flat cross section into single row lamination state including wire layers aligned along perpendicular line to flat surfaces of wire. The coil is formed for first portion to be inserted in slot and second portion not inserted in slot appear alternately along the coil. The method displaces wire layers at the first portion changing the single row lamination state to connectively laminated state where wire layers at portion to be inserted in slot each adjacent pair of the wire layers partially overlap with respect to direction perpendicular to flat wire surfaces. The method includes inserting wires of first portion into slot, passing each wire layer through slot opening successively from the top wire layer of lamination and displacing each wire layer at first portion from each other.

  • Patent number: 7671504
    Abstract: An electric motor is disclosed with an air-cored winding which is composed of a plurality of single coils made of wire, wherein the single coils overlap each other in an imbricated manner and the single coils are preformed to form an offset at least in the region of two opposite corners, so that half of the legs are located in a first plane and half of the legs are located in a second plane. A more inexpensive and more robust assembly of air-cored windings for electric motors can thereby be achieved.

  • Patent number: 7619345
    Abstract: A stator coil assembly includes a cylindrical support tube with first and second pluralities of stator coils disposed radially around the support tube. Each stator coil includes first, second, third, and fourth linear segments, each having first and second planar broad sides. The second and fourth linear segments extend in parallel along a first axis with the first and second broad sides of the second and fourth linear segments lying in a common plane. The first and third linear segments extend in parallel along a second axis perpendicular to the first axis. Transition segments having first and second planar broad sides each join a pair of linear segments. The transition segments of the first and second pluralities of stator coils define curvatures toward and away from the center axis, respectively, such that the first and third linear segments are disposed at a substantially equal radial distance from the center axis.

  • Patent number: 7555893
    Abstract: To provide an aircraft propulsion system which can secure the optimum thrust and thrust vector for flight conditions, as well as the optimum sectional area for the engine, and which is highly compatible with the environment. An electrical generator is coupled to a turbofan engine, the electrical generator is driven by output power of the turbofan engine to output electric power, and an electromagnetic driving fan is driven by the electric power. On the other hand, after bringing each of coils in the electromagnetic driving fan to a superconductive state, liquid hydrogen is introduced to a heat exchanger, collects the energy of exhaust as heat, is then vaporized, and thereafter supplied to a combustor and to a fuel cell. Further, the electromagnetic driving fan is changed in its rotational phase by a rotating mechanism portion, is made movable in a width direction of a wing and a wing chord direction by a slide mechanism portion, and can be stored inside or outside the wing by a storage mechanism portion.

  • Patent number: 7554241
    Abstract: A motor with three gaps produces higher torque than existing one or two gap motors. The motor uses both one radial and two axial gaps to produce torque. A single stator is provided with an essentially “U” shaped rotor shell having permanent magnets with back iron. The stator has loops of coil windings separated by pole pieces. Current flowing in three segments of the coils interacts with the fields from the permanent magnets to produce more torque. The plane of the coils extends through the centerline of the stator. In a given plane through the motor axis, the same polarity of the magnets on the rotor face the stator.

  • Publication number: 20090121575
    Abstract: The invention relates to a generator, especially for motor vehicles, which comprises a generator stator (36) having winding slots and subcoils (10 21) lying in said winding slots (35). The subcoils (10 21) are connected to each other via a bridge circuit (3) in order to produce a DC voltage from a multiphase AC voltage produced by a rotary field. The generator is configured as a multiphase generator (30), preferably a three-phase or six-phase generator (30). The aim of the invention is to reduce magnetic nose and torque ripple merely by modifying the subcoil wiring. For this purpose, the subcoils (10 21) are connected to an angular ring and the bridge circuit (3) connected to the ring has a lower phase number than corners of the angular ring circuit (1).
