September 23, 2011 – Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. (AML) announced today that the Company is among six awardees of a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the advancement of next generation wind turbine technology. AML was selected based on a proprietary innovative turbine generator which enables the development of the first fully superconducting direct-drive generator for large offshore wind turbines. These generators are up to 75% lighter, 50% smaller, more efficient and more reliable than systems in use today. This award represents an initial step in the fulfillment of AML’s Clean Energy Plan for deployment of clean, scalable and efficient generators and motors for large-scale energy systems. Successful development and deployment of this new technology will help position the United States as a global leader in wind energy technologies, reduce the cost of wind energy, and support thousands of new manufacturing, construction and planning jobs in the renewable energy market.
June 13, 2011 – The Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc. (AML) has been awarded a three-year research contract from
NASA for developing an experimentally validated, high fidelity, physics-based sizing model for high power
superconducting machines, such as electrical generators and turbo-electric propulsion fans. The project
addresses NASA’s objectives for developing new aircraft technologies which have significant improvements in
propulsion efficiency, reliability, emissions and noise. AML’s effort will include developing very versatile
design/synthesis software tools. These tools will be experimentally validated by laboratory tests, allowing NASA
to size and model superconducting machines and perform aircraft design based on hybrid-electric propulsion.
