A Double Rotor Flux Switching Machine with HTS Field Coils for All Electric Aircraft Applications

For multiple motor designs the thermal management system, mechanical structure, and electrical connections were designed.  The mechanical structures underwent FEM stress analysis.  A prototype motor subsection (statorette) was designed, fabricated, and tested at Air Force Research Laboratory.  Values for electrical and magnetic loss were updated for different designs and operational conditions.

Cryogenic Electrical Properties of an Aluminum-Beryllium Nanocomposite

Cryoresistive AlBeMet 162H had its electrical resistivity measured at a range of cryogenic temperatures and applied transverse magnetic fields.  The resistivity of AlBeMet 162H is lower than Cu in the range of 80K-150K, and AlBeMet 162H is less than a quarter of the mass density.  Cost analysis was performed and it was found an AlBeMet 162H cable would be 10x the cost of a similar ampacity Cu cable.
