The Directors are pleased to announce the collaboration efforts of Intelligent Electric Motor Solutions Pty Ltd and The University of Adelaide – School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in the awarding of an Australian Research Council (ARC) Linkage Project Grant. The Research Grant is directed to the: High power density, low cogging torque and low-cost micro-scale wind turbine generator system utilizing soft magnetic composite materials. The Chief Investigator for this Grant from the University of Adelaide is Associate Professor Dr Nesimi Ertugrul and he recently stated: “This project will develop a low-cost, high performance and high-efficiency micro-scale wind turbine generator using a new magnetic material consisting of iron powder, which can be easily pressed into any desirable shape. This allows considerably simplified manufacturing, greater design flexibility and ease of scaling to higher output powers”. This Federally funded research will be undertaken over the next three years. The Directors acknowledged the importance that independent, third party validation plays in attracting credible investors and manufacturers into this technology.
