Bulk Applications of HTSC--A Machine Designer’s Perspective
The prospect of practical high temperature superconductors (HTSC) has fired the imaginations of all electrical machine designers. Reduced refrigeration requirements are the most obvious advantage, but the implications of ...
Monolithic Coil Tokamak
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. ...
Hydrodynamic bearing applications of micro-electro-mechanical systems
Microdynamical systems have been studied for a number of years, with concentration on sensors and, more recently, actuators. Only limited work has been completed on integrating microdynamical components into systems that ...
Development of a 9 MJ Electric Gun System and Range
The Task B effort officially began in 1986 with the announcement of the Electromagnetic Gun Weapon System Program (EMGWS). The goal of this subtask was to demonstrate a single shot EM gun suitable for establishing parameters ...
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 ...
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 ...
