High Performance Permanent Magnets for Advanced Motors
CX(s) Applied: B3.6, B5.1
Location(s): Landisville, Pennsylvania
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The overall objective of this program is to develop high performance permanent magnets with improved Proposed Action or Project Description American Recovery and Reinvestment Act: magnetic properties at temperatures up to 240 in advanced motor applications, and low cost. For Phase III, Electron Energy Corporation proposes to dedicate further optimization of the identified feasible approaches, development of standard grades of high resistivity magnets, pilot production and beta site testing. Cost reduction will be addressed by further development of automated production processes. Moreover, the dielectric constituents of the new composite/hybrid magnets, as well as the simple fabrication process, will also contribute to achieving the goal of more affordable high-performance magnets. Phase III effort would be focused on exploring opportunities to commercialize the high resistivity and high performance magnets developed in this program.
