Working with NGenTec

NGenTec is a spin out company from the University of Edinburgh building a novel, lighter-weight, electrical generator aimed at both on-shore and off-shore wind energy production.

Currently they are building a 1MW test generator and I'm working with them to help selection of rotor materials based on their magnetic and electrical performance. Optimisation of these properties is critical as they determine the power density and ultimate efficiency of NGenTec's generators.This knowledge transfer collaboration has been enabled by £5,000 support from the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance's (SUPA) START programme funded by SEEKIT and the ERDF.
