    What is Grain Oriented Electrical Steel.

    It is common for cheap transformers to use non-oriented electrical steel, or for really fancy transformers to use amorphous metal transformers, which are both isotropic metals, not anisotropic materials like Grain oriented electical steel (which is also used in agni motors by the way).

    Amorphous is the new best technology, but expensive. If you consider the amount of electricity you will save over the lifetime of the transformer however it might actually be cheaper, and if you are trying to get every kW out of your electrical grid as possible that is the way to go.

    WINNER!!!!

    Grain oriented steel was the answer I was looking for. :-)

    You're up next Biff.

    This motor topology term is used to describe a motor with radially oriented magnetic field in the air-gap, but primarily axially on the rotor and the stator.

    Negative.

    I'll give you a hint. It makes an "excellent motor". (the term is available on their website)

    What is conical gap motor by Nova torque?
    http://www.novatorque.com/technology...-geometry.html

    Very interesting design, saves on copper waste heat, but does it generate enough torque to be practical for transportation?

    What is a transverse flux motor.


    Wow! That took me forever to get.lol

    Best question yet Biff! The first one that required me researching and learning. :-) Thank you!

    Mr Loves Physics gets it, but good research Mr Volty Nuts.

    I believe The Nova Torque motor really is an Axial flux motor with a little bit of angle on the magnets to allow for some flux concentration from what I remember. The transverse flux is really a different beast.

    For those of you interested in Transverse Flux motors, Motor Excellence (http://www.motorexcellence.com/) and eocycle ( http://eocycle2010.netedit.info/53/P...rators.eocycle ) are the two companies that I know of making something using this technology. A slight variation of it (from what I have read) is KDL http://www.kldenergy.com/
