Do you think it might be possible to design new magnetic alloys that are extremely lightweight ? If generators could be made lighter they would require less energy to power them ?
Alternatively, is it possible to increase a materials magnetic field or both? Which is the best way do you think to increase the overall performance of generators?
The best way to increase the overall performance of generators is to decrease the resistance of the wires in its electromagnets and to decrease the friction between the rotors and the stators. Using superconductors can decrease the resistance of the wires.
