The turbogenerator incorporates a compressor, recuperator, turbine, and permanent magnet generator. The rotating components are mounted on a single shaft, supported by patented air bearings, and rotate at up to 96,000 RPM (full load). The generator is cooled by airflow into the gas turbine, thus eliminating the need for liquid cooling. The output of the system is variable frequency (50 or 60 Hz) AC power.
