摘要

Linear alternators work seamlessly with Free-Piston Stirling Engines (FPSE) in the energy conversion process. This research concentrates on the design and development of a tubular slot-spaced Permanent Magnet Linear Alternator (PMLA) to be coupled with the FPSE. In an attempt to increase the power density of the machine over conventional PMLAs, a slot space is added to reduce the total mass of the stator and a parametrical study is carried out for the same. Numerically ana-lyzing the fundamental parameters such as change of stator and magnet materials, and operating conditions frequency and stroke length. The effects of slotting are studied to understand the skin-ning effects on the tooth and the performance variation of the machine. A modified model is obtained to surpass 100 W from the numerical analysis of the parametric variations. Putting the machine to extreme limitations, the study conducted upon variations of parameters obtained a stable maximum power density of 186 W/kg and produced a power of 921 W for the designed PMLA. The study outlines the variation seen in the performance of the machine in such diverse conditions they go through during their life cycle.
