TES has successfully completed a research and development project

Company TES VSETÍN s.r.o. has successfully completed three-year research and development project at the turn of 2019 and 2020 to optimize synchronous machines with salient poles. The project was carried out in cooperation with the research team of the Brno University of Technology and was co-financed by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic within the Epsilon 2 program, which is aimed at supporting applied research and experimental development.

The project contain optimization studies of current and newly designed concepts of small and large sizes of the generators, which should in the future contribute to increasing the competitiveness of the company on the domestic and international market. Three prototypes of pilot exciters with permanent magnets have been designed and tested.  The pilot exciters will be used to energize the automatic voltage regulators of synchronous machines. The result is a comprehensive range of pilot exciters with the potential to cover a wide speed range (150 – 1500 rpm). In addition, new technologies have been verified to eliminate or eliminate technological problems in the field of stacking and winding of synchronous machine rotors with salient poles. Based on the results of optimization studies and newly proven technologies, prototype of a six-pole synchronous machine with salient poles was designed and manufactured. Its properties have been successfully verified at the high voltage testing facility of TES VSETÍN s.r.o.

The research activity of the company is still in progress. At the end of 2019, the company succeed to obtain a subsidy for a new research and development project focused on synchronous permanent magnet generators, which will run between 2020 and 2023 in cooperation with the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen. TES  VSETÍN confirms its strong position in the field of research and innovation.
