A portable apparatus for generating electrical energy is provided comprising: an electrical energy-generating device for generating electricity in response to input mechanical action; a gravity powered drive for supplying the said mechanical action to the electricity-generating device by the descent of a suspended mass under the force of gravity; and a re-energising mechanism adapted to cause the gravity powered drive to operate whilst the mass is being raised.



DYNAMO-ELECTRIC MACHINE

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

A dynamo-electric machine reduces the increase in temperature of a stator close to a cooling liquid outlet and a stator end portion, and that has excellent cooling performance. The dynamo-electric machine is provided with: a stator, a rotor that is held on the inner-diameter-side of the stator across a predetermined gap so as to be capable of rotating; and a housing that is located on the outer-diameter-side of the stator and holds the stator and the rotor. The housing is provided with a cooling liquid channel through which a cooling liquid flows, the radial height of the cooling liquid channel within the housing differing depending on the axial position of the rotor.



ROTARY ELECTRIC MACHINE AND A MANUFACTURING METHOD THEREFOR

A radially outer insulating paper includes: an annular radially outer insulating paper base portion that is disposed on a radially inner side of a row of first coil terminals; and radially outer insulating paper protruding portions that each protrude radially outward from an axially outer end portion of the radially outer insulating paper base portion, and that are inserted between adjacent first coil terminals axially further outward than second bent portions; and a radially inner insulating paper includes: an annular radially inner insulating paper base portion that is disposed on a radially outer side of a row of second coil terminals; and radially inner insulating paper protruding portions that each protrude radially inward from an axially outer end portion of the radially inner insulating paper base portion, and that are inserted between adjacent second coil terminals axially further outward than fourth bent portions.



LINER, STATOR ASSEMBLY AND ASSOCIATED METHOD

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

A liner for use for a resilient stator of an electric machine for positioning between teeth formed in the stator. The stator is conformable from a first generally extending shape with opposed spaced apart ends and to a second generally hollow circular shape. The liner includes a central portion for positioning in a cavity between the adjacent teeth, a first end portion for limiting motion of the liner extending from the central portion and adapted to cooperate with a first end face of the stator, and a second end portion extending from the central portion and cooperating with a second end face of the stator, opposed to the first end face. The first end portion limits motion of the liner. The liner is positioned between adjacent teeth when the stator is in the first shape and remains in the cavity when the stator is in the second shape.



ROTOR ASSEMBLY

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 08:00:00 EST

Disclosed herein is a rotor assembly, including a cylindrical housing coupled to an outer circumferential surface of a rotor body and configured to house a coil turn therein, a supporting unit disposed in the housing and configured to prevent the coil turn from being pushed in an axial direction of a rotor, and a vane ring coupled to one end of the housing and provided with blades guiding cooling fluid to the coil turn. The rotor assembly may include: coil turns each of which is formed by stacking conductors in a multilayer structure and includes a linear part interposed between teeth, and a curved part extending from the linear part and disposed on an outer surface of a spindle; first supporting blocks which are inserted into the curved part and disposed between the conductors; and a second supporting block which is disposed between the first supporting blocks.
