    If you have a permanent magnet generator being driven by a turbine and the generator outputs some power level, how would the configuration of a generator change if it is suppose to drive a turbine's compressor stage with the same power?

    I think the meaning is how would one change the generator to a motor that supplies the same output power.

    I just don't understand applying electrical power to the stator would make a PM rotor move.

    Any details would be appreciated.

    This certainly doesn't seem like an "urgent" question to me.

    A permanent magnet generator for dc ( generators are usually dc ) has a commutator and brushes to make dc. It is thus a dc motor as well. I think the same equations between voltage and rpm apply in either mode.

    Maybe the OP forgot to put it in the homework forum.
