# Linear Generator efficiency

1. Jun 1, 2010

I have been having difficulty finding information regarding Linear Generators, maybe they have not been used enough and are begininning to be sought after more for renewable energy production.

Back to the title, does anyone know approximately the efficiency of a linear generator, or at least in comparrison to a radial electrical generator.

I have also been trying to find formulas relating to cycles/sec for the linear generator in relation to the length of stroke back and forth which it goes through.

Thanks.
