The invention provides means of limiting maximum current conducted through windings of an electric machine having a rotor and a stator. By encouraging an appropriate leakage flux around a winding, a leak impedance can be achieved which may be used, according to the invention, to limit the maximum current in the winding as a matter of machine design.
What is claimed is: 1. An electric machine operable as an alternator, the machine comprising: a rotating magnetic rotor assembly; and a stationary stator assembly mounted adjacent the rotor assembly such that an annular rotor air gap separates the rotor assembly from the stator assembly, the stator assembly including a plurality of lengthwise extending slots on a cylindrical surface of the stator assembly and opposed to the annular rotor air gap, the stator assembly further including at least one electrical winding disposed in at least one of the length...
