The 360 Power Group Generator and Electric Motor Utilizes
a Proprietary Radial-Axial-Radial Magnetic Field Design
This new architecture contributes to:
- Very High Power Density
- Very High Efficiency
- Extraordinary Torque
- Throughout The Operating Range, and
- At Continuous Low Speeds
360 Power Group electric generators are designed for continuous, primary power generation. They are well-suited for remote locations, such as cell towers, forward operating bases, and micro-grid and nano-grid applications. Depending on use, replacing conventional diesel or gasoline gensets with 360 Power Group gensets will result in a 33% reduction in fuel usage.
360 Power Group electric generators will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from internal combustion engines driving the generators by 33%.
Multiple Magnetic Field Synergy
360 Power Group’s proprietary, multiple magnetic fields operate simultaneously, rather than the one, or possibly two, magnetic fields of conventional machines, whether field wound or permanent magnet.
This results in dramatic increases in
- Power Density
Fully Embedded Modular, Switchable Coils
Instead of conventional field windings, 360 Power Group electric generators are constructed with proprietary coil/ferromagnetic core modules. As a result, the generators are constructed with two-thirds less copper than conventional generators while producing more relative power. In addition, the modular coil design contributes to significant thermal efficiency, which improves fuel consumption. This thermal efficiency allows the machine to be installed on a desert floor, or mountain peak without major modification. The machine in full operation is barely warm to a hand touch. Reduced heat contributes to longer machine life, and significantly less energy is used to cool the machine. Modularity also reduces manufacturing and maintenance costs. The machines can be built so that, in the unlikely event of a field repair, a bad module can be removed and replaced easily without technical expertise.
The 360 Power Group’s proprietary design precludes catastrophic machine failure from coil failure. Even if multiple coils were to fail, the machine would only experience proportional reduction in power output.
No Gear Box or Transmission Required
360 Power Group electric generators eliminate gear boxes or transmissions. The modular coils can operate independently, creating an internal electronic gearbox. This enhances the already extraordinary torque performance and operating efficiency, while contributing to the exceptional overall power density. The resulting perfomrance makes renewable energy applications feasible where they were heretofore marginal or impossible.
High Efficiency – Even At Low RPM Levels
360 Power Group electric generators exceed NEMA Premium Efficiency Standards and do so in a significantly smaller and lighter machine than other machines that are classified as premium efficient. The generators can operate at either variable or fixed speeds, permitting maximum operating efficiency relative to load demands.
High Torque Throughout Performance Range
Even without the use of the proprietary switchable coil feature, the architecture results in extraordinarily high torque throughout the machine’s performance range
The current design is scalable for both generators and motors from 1kW and 3MW in size; all with similar physical and operating advantages.
Frequency, Voltage & Amperage
360 Power Group machines are fully compatible with the most sophisticated power electronics; and can produce all conventional output levels including concurrent AC and DC power production.
