|20130181565||SCULPTED FIELD POLE MEMBERS AND METHODS OF FORMING THE SAME FOR ELECTRODYNAMIC MACHINES - A method, apparatus, article of manufacture and system for producing a field pole member for electrodynamic machinery are disclosed to, among other things, reduce magnetic flux path lengths and to eliminate back-iron for increasing torque and/or efficiency per unit size (or unit weight) and for reducing manufacturing costs. For example, a field pole member structure can either reduce the length of magnetic flux paths or substantially straighten those paths through the field pole members, or both. In one embodiment, a method provides for the construction of field pole members for electrodynamic machines.||07-18-2013|
|20130119814||FOIL COIL STRUCTURES AND METHODS FOR WINDING THE SAME FOR AXIAL-BASED ELECTRODYNAMIC MACHINES - Disclosed are foil coil structures and methods for winding the same for stators in electrodynamic machines, as well as electrodynamic machines that implement such coil structures. In one embodiment, a foil coil structure is configured for implementation with a field pole member having pole faces that confront, for example, conical magnets.||05-16-2013|
|20120248917||STATOR AND ROTOR-STATOR STRUCTURES FOR ELECTRODYNAMIC MACHINES - Embodiments of the invention relate generally to electric motors, alternators, generators and the like, and more particularly, to stator structures and rotor-stator structures for motors that can be configured to, for example, reduce detent.||10-04-2012|
|20120228979||OUTER ROTOR ASSEMBLIES FOR ELECTRODYNAMIC MACHINES - Embodiments of various rotor assemblies can include an arrangement of magnetically permeable structures including confronting surfaces oriented at an angle to the centerline, and different subsets of non-confronting surfaces. Different magnets can be disposed adjacent to the different subsets of non-confronting subsets. For example, one type of magnet lies is a flux path or a flux path portion passing through one subset of non-confronting surfaces, and another type of magnet is external to the flux path adjacent to another subset of non-confronting surfaces and is configured to boost the flux associated with the flux path (or a portion thereof). In some embodiments, the magnetic region can include a portion of the internal permanent magnet. One example of a rotor assembly is an outer rotor assembly.||09-13-2012|
