    You say your topic is "mechanics of an electric generator." Do you mean the mechanical aspects such as centrifugal loads on the windings, possibilities for rotor whirl, windage, etc., or did you mean the electromechanical process of torque development, winding distributions, torque ripple, etc, or perhaps something else altogether

    Hello, you are not so advanced these references for your report :.

    - Power Electronics And Motor Drives: Advances and Trends Bimal K. Bose
    - Modeling and High Performance Control of Electric Machines John Chiasson
    - Electric Machinery A Fitzgerald, Arthur Eugene Fitzgerald, Charles Kingsley, Stephen Umans

    These texts whose main theme is the electric motor. I hope you are quite helpful. Greetings.
