Abstract

This paper presents a novel segment type DC excited Reluctance Generator (DCeRG) with segment type rotor core. Conventional proposed DCeRG has simple and robust structure, low cost, and maintenance free for small-scale distributed power sources. In the paper, by using FEM we confirmed that the output power and efficiency of the DCeRG with segment type rotor core are improved in comparison with conventional DCeRG which has salient pole rotor. Furthermore, torque ripple is remarkably reduced by the segment rotor structure.
