Gentlemen,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is my scenario. I am building a new project utilizing a PMG that produces 5KW at 840V at 189 RPM. The manufacturer is supplying me with a torque curve that does not appear to be correct. They say, at full power extraction it has 350Nm of shaft torque. Is this correct? If so, why? That equates to roughly 20HP or 18KW.

This is either a wasteful course to generate electricity, or the math is being lost in translation.

I am in the PLC/Autmation Integrator arena and haven't the correct forumla to calculate. Nor do I now what information is required to build the equation. Motor torque, easy. Generator torque, not so much.

I appreciate all the assistance in advance.
