CONCEPTUAL STUDY OF PERMANENT MAGNET MACHINE SHIP PROPULSION SYSTEMS

This report, which is available in microfiche form, examines the feasibility of incorporating permanent-magnet machines into an a.c. electric propulsion system for U.S. Navy ships. Conventional generators and permanent magnet motors, would be the preferred choice. It is concluded that such a system would be practicable for ship propulsion; it would be relatively light in weight, have a good efficiency and be very flexible.
