Brush-Less Car Alternator with DC Stator Excitation 2003-01-0453
The performance and property of brush-less car alternator with gap flux controlled by DC stator coil is discussed in this paper. This type of alternator is more dependable, has reduced weight and dimension of rotor compared with traditional alternators. Reduction of the rotor weight is obtained by elimination of rotor coil and reduction of steel core weight. The stator steel core is laminated and exactly like ordinary stator core, but coils are different. There are three phase stator coils and coil for DC excitation. Salient multi poles rotor is laminated and does not contain any coils This paper presents theoretical discussion of principle of operation of this type of machine. Traditional alternator was modified for physical modeling. Results of this modeling are presented as well.
