This New Generation of Direct-Drive Electric Machines will Power our Future.

Until now, manufacturers of wind turbines and electric machines always had to find a balance between using generators with gearbox (meaning lower weight, but also lower reliability) and direct-drive systems (higher reliability and efficiency, but higher weight).

A new generation of low-weight and highly efficient direct drive motors and generators are on the horizon and they combine the best of both worlds. This new generation of electric machines is based on recent innovations in Axial Flux Technology.
