Title: Permanent Magnet AC Induction Motor
A prototype was built based on an AC induction motor where the electric windings are replaced with a switchable permanent magnet. The conversion of the mechanical energy into electric energy has demonstrated an efficiency of 150% compared to conventional motors. Presently a 6-pole motor with 220 kW is being converted and afterwards should an overall power of 350 kW through this technology; it will be used in the Energy Park Zöbling in 2007.
