In this study; basically the design of a 1KVA tubular linear alternator has been carried out for a free mechanical piston and internal combustion engine. In the conducted design, the conformity of the optimization data has been examined with finite elements method and the geometrical dimensionings of the designed alternator have been determined with a developed analytical calculation program. Because it is aimed to attain an alternator for usage in hybrid-electrical vehicles with this study; within this scope, the operational frequency and stroke status of internal combustion engine have been taken into consideration. In addition to the data of operational frequency and stroke status belonging to an internal combustion engine, the dimensions of a linear generator have been determined by using a circuit model equivalent to the generator. The physical shape of this generator is in tubular. Within the scope of the study; they have also been compared to the calculated analytical data, optimized dimension, weight, volume and cost values belonging to the alternator.
