p>Flat-quasi type of linear permanent magnet generators (LPMGs) have been considered to be applied for several applications, such for wave energy conversion and free piston combustion engine. One of the important issues concerning LPMG is the permanent magnets configuration, due to its effects to the generator’s excitation performance. In this pape...

Most of the conventional linear generator is constructed with either Alnico (specially AlNiCo-9) or Neodymium iron boron (NdFeB) permanent magnets (PMs) for harvesting oceanic wave energy. Alnico is a composition of aluminium (Al), nickel (Ni), and cobalt (Co) added to iron, which is its major volumetric component. Alnico has a poor magnetic energy...
