I am working on a project with a gas engine at constant speed of 1500RPM to drive a permanent magnet generator with magnetic ball bearings. - SKF.function is GENSET - PM generator is water cooled. - PM generator is horizontal positioned.
The permanent magnets Nd-Fe-Bare axial located on the rotor - radial flux PM.
From the supplier of the generator I received 2 torque ratings:
- start torque: 2.9 Nm
- rated torque: 191 Nm
The gas engine has a torque of 97Nm.
The generator is 3phase 400V AC - 45.6A - 4 poles -50HZ - 93% efficiency - PF 1 connected to the grid, and off grid via an inverter to a battery bank.
Will this work properly, or do I need a rated torque of the gas engine greater or equal to that of the generator?
Assume continuous full load, as it is connected to a battery bank.
In another option it is connected to the grid.
Any specs you would need I would able to supply if possible.
