Metal Heating with the Homopolar Generator
The use of homopolar generators operated in the pulse mode to provide the heat necessary to accomplish resistance welds in large metal sections and to heat forging billets offers several possible advantages over present ...
The Homopolar Pulse Billet Heating Process
The use of homopolar generators operated in the pulse mode to heat forging billets offers several possible advantages over present heating methods. Because heating is uniform throughout the entire cross section, billets ...
Fundamental Limitations and Design Considerations for Compensated Pulsed Alternators
Since the beginning of a project intended to demonstrate the feasibility of using a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) as a power supply for NOVA and other solid state laser systems, a great deal of interest has ...
FDX--A Fast Discharge Homopolar Generator
During the winter of 1973 and spring of 1974 a study was undertaken by the Energy Storage Group* of The University of Texas at Austin to determine the fundamental limitations to the discharge times of homopolar generators. ...
The TEXT Energy Storage System
Pulsed Power from Inertial Storage with Homopolar Machines for Conversion
Because of its simplicity, an inertial energy storage with a homopolar machine for conversion can provide a relatively inexpensive pulsed-power supply for some important applications. The fundamental principles of operation ...
