The Zephyr Maglev Alternator

“Experience better performance.”

Alternators have been wasting energy on friction and heat for decades; we are changing that by using Maglev Technology.

Insert the Zephyr Explainer video. (Still working on a revised version, I will send it when it is completed)

The Zephyr Ultra-Low Friction (ULF) Maglev Generator/Motor’s design is a radical shift in electromagnetic bearing technology that produces greater efficiency versus its non-magnetic and magnetic bearing counterparts. A unique feature that sets the Zephyr ULF Generator apart from others is the interlocking magnetic C-Channel that creates a nearly frictionless track.

This approach minimizes the mechanical braking effects that drain productive energy in electrical kinetic energy conversion. By reducing the overall torque, this Generator is ideally suited for small wind turbines (1-100kW) operating at lower wind speed conditions. The Zephyr is scalable and can work for turbines greater than 100 kw.

The speeds that rotor blades need to rotate to generate electricity are lower than those recommended for electricity generation. The cut-in speed requires sufficient torque to start producing electricity. Magnetic braking forces, and other impediments that cause friction, impair the turbine from performing optimally for the given wind resource. The Zephyr enables wind turbines to extract more electricity conversion at varying wind speeds and, due to the maglev technology, significantly reduces friction.

The alternator is a critical component of wind turbines. The environment in which they operate impacts the alternator’s longevity and requires regular maintenance. Replacing an alternator can be time, labor-intensive, and costly. Switching to a Zephyr alternator will increase the electricity production and lifecycle, reduce operational and maintenance costs and lower the levelized cost of energy.

For wind turbine designers, wind farm developers, or wind asset managers, the Zephyr alternator can improve your turbines’ performance and return on investment by 10%. We are currently exploring paid pilots with strategic partners; if you are interested in developing the next generation of maglev alternators, we would love to connect. Contact us today.
