Abstract: The Integrated turbine electric generator (ITEG) machine has been designed by Stefano Farné and Vito Lavanga and it is the subject of a registered patent that has also received WIPO positive research reports. ITEG allows to integrate a fluid dynamic machine and an electric motor into a single device, making it versatile and allowing a wide range of use both as a pump, giving prevalence to a fluid, and as a turbine, generating electric power. Thanks to the extreme simplicity of installation and to the low maintenance request, since it is gearless, ITEG can be more convenient than traditional machines, both for hydroelectric energy production and for pumping purposes. The present paper shows the various aspects of the design of this innovative machine, presents the literature review examined in terms of scientific articles and patents and illustrates the mathematical model that allows ITEG sizing and the simulation of its operation.
