Subscale Rotor Spin Testing for Compulsator Component Development
The maturation of pulsed rotating machines has evolved to the stage where a greater degree of basic research is required to further increase the energy and power density of advanced compulsators. The University of Texas ...
Railgun Solid Armature Scale Modeling
This paper describes a methodology for using two finite element (FE) codes, MAGTRPL and DYNA, to perform electromechanic, thermal, and structural modeling of railgun solid armatures. We analyze subscale armature experiments ...
High Strain Insulation Systems for Compulsator Rotors
As the power density requirement for new compulsator (CPA) designs increases, designers are driven to use more composites to reduce mass, spin the rotors faster to store more energy, and operate the machine at higher ...
Electromagnetic and Structural Analyses of an Integrated Launch Package
In this paper, detailed three-dimensional (3D) transient electromagnetic (EM) analyses with temperature-dependent material properties were performed using a state-of-the-art analysis tool to calculate current densities, ...
Design, Fabrication, and Testing of 10 MJ Composite Flywheel Energy Storage Rotors
(Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc., 1998)
Flywheel energy storage systems employing high-speed composite flywheels and advanced electric motor/generators are being evaluated by the Department of Defense (DoD), NASA, and firms to replace electrochemical battery ...
