Report KD 608 has been reviewed such that it now contains the drawings of the rotor and the 8-pole axial flux generator of the VIRYA-1. The rotor calculations are also included in report KD 608. The 8-pole generator is now the standard generator for the VIRYA-1. The 6-pole generator for the VIRYA-1 as described in report KD 574 is cancelled and therefore report KD 574 is cancelled too.
The 8-pole generator of the VIRYA-1 has a synthetic stator sheet and therefore no eddy currents are generated. The sticking torque will therefore be very low and the VIRYA-1 will have a very low starting wind speed and a high maximum efficiency. It is scheduled to build and test a prototype of the VIRYA-1 generator in spring 2016.
