The Magnetide project aims to develop the following technologies and outputs:

  • A novel, gearless, generator design concept that is efficient at the low rotational speeds that are appropriate to ocean energy generators
  • Soft magnetic materials that facilitate the new generator design and which also have potential applications in a host of other industries (see Applications and Aims)
  • A kilowatt-scale prototype of the new generator concept.
