Periodic Reporting for period 1 - HEAF (High-Efficiency Axial Flux Machines)
Reporting period: 2018-01-01 to 2018-04-30
The objective of H2020 Phase1 was market analysis of use of the larger low speed machines in the wind energy industry and of the smaller high-speed machines in the domain of electric vehicles. We found that both markets will grow significantly over the following years, so it makes sense to commercialize different sizes of axial flux machines for both markets. From a technical point of view, the main reason why Magnax will be able to do this is because of the inherently scalable design of our electric machines. Based on the findings we have finetuned our product roadmap and market introduction strategy.
By providing an innovative axial flux machine to improve the efficiency of electrical generation and electric motors across multiple segments, from power generation to transport, whilst simultaneously reducing resource requirements, Magnax contributes to a lower carbon and efficient energy system.
