“The vehicle also comes with a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque (the stator is the stationary part of an electric generator or electric motor).”
“The stator is the stationary coil in an electric motor in which the rotor, attached to the drive shaft spins.”
“Duke Energy said the protest in a South C.rolina parking lot shouldn't slow the three-month trip to move the equipment, called a stator, from a port in the southern part of the state to a power generating plant under construction near C.iffside, N.C. The part had been parked in a lot near Greenville for about a week when four protesters scaled a fence around 8: 45 a.m.”
“The excitation current for the exciter is provided by a DC current to the exciter stator which is generated by the output power of the main generator.”
“Tamron's USD works with the high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations that are produced by a ring called a 'stator'.”
“The vehicle also comes with a hand-wound stator and increased winding density for lower resistance and higher peak torque (the stator is the stationary part of an electric generator or electric motor.”
“From the ultrasonic bath we proceeded to the chamber vacuum sealer, the ultra-high-pressure homogenizer, the rotor-stator homogenizer -- well, just see the gallery.”
“The December experiment shows a more or less conventional DC motor with a permanent magnet rotor and a stator wound with toroidal coils; this is an odd choice since toroidal wound coils produce a small external magnetic field and so make very inefficient motors.”
“Then he could be harnessed to a copper coil situated in a magnetic stator where his spinning from one position to another would generate much needed electricity for the power grid.”
“The containment fields have a stator backup—so instead of keeping the gravity on, the stator is maintaining antimatter containment.”
