MULTIPOLE SUPERCONDUCTING ELECTRIC MOTORS FOR SHIP PROPULSION

This paper presents the results of an analysis which assumes a motor of sufficient size that the airgap may be considered to be flat. A power output expression is given which shows the effect of machine geometry and superconductor characteristics on machine size. Based on this expression, a 40,000 hp 120 rpm motor is sized, and the resulting machine is compared with a conventional ship drive motor. The comparison illustrates possible size reductions through the application of superconductivity.
