This paper describes the effect of alternative power conversion techniques on the performance of a Linear Alternator driven by a Joule Cycle-Free Piston Engine for electrical power generation. The design of a tubular Longitudinal Flux machine with axial magnets is performed using 2-D axisymmetric FEA modelling with transient solver to extract the rated power for three power conversion scenarios: Resistive Loading, Grid Interface, and Unity Power Factor Controlled Converter. The design study is carried out for a specific engine operating force and velocity, taking into consideration geometrical constraints for a compact system. Results are presented and discussed emphasizing the effect of the power conversion method on the idealized resultant machine physical and performance parameters.
