Description/Abstract

The paper reports on an investigation to reduce harmonic content in the airgap flux density of a high temperature superconducting synchronous generator with a coreless rotor. 3D finite element field simulation has been applied and a simple optimisation technique devised. The shape of specially designed flux diverters has been optimised.
