Abstract : The design, development and testing of an advanced containment structure for high speed permanent magnet machines is presented. The primary intent of the program was to achieve a reduction in system weight, volume and cost through the use of an improved containment design. A secondary objective was to minimize rotor pole face losses and, thus improve generator efficiency.
