The excitation system (ES) of the wound-field synchronous machine (WFSM) has remained largely unchanged over the past 50 years. Nonetheless, there has been significant research into exciterless solutions, which, through the integration of the ES with the main machine, aim to offer improved power density, simplified manufacture, and better cooling opportunities.
