    Five phases and no permanent magnets. A new type of generator has been developed at Gdańsk Tech

    A team of scientists from the Faculty of Electrical and Control Engineering (WEiA ) has developed a prototype of an innovative multi-phase generator. It guarantees the machine to work, by powering it during failure of one of the phases. Its production does not require permanent magnets, which makes the potential manufacturer independent from the Chinese market. A team of scientists from WEiA,...
