An aero-engine is provided with an integrated switched reluctance generator permanently connected to the low speed spool of the engine such that "windmilling" of the engine enables the generator to be turned if the engine suffers a flame out. The generator is driven by a step up gearbox so as to provide reasonable electrical output, say 25 kW, during flameout whilst keeping the generator weight down.
1. An electrical generator for use with a gas turbine engine having a low speed spool, wherein the generator is driven from the low speed spool, in which the generator is a switched reluctance generator permanently coupled to the low speed spool via a step up gear box.
