Computer Based Electrical Analysis of Homopolar Generator Driven, Bitter Plate Storage Inductors with Radial Current Diffusion
Maxwell's equations are solved for the operational admittance in the magnetic quasi-static approximation for nonmagnetic cylindrical coils with aximuthal currents and axial magnetic fields. An infinite series, Bessel ...
Engineering Analysis for LINUS Imploding Liquid Liner Systems
The Center for Electromechanics (CEM) of The University of Texas at Austin has completed an engineering analysis of controlled imploding liquid metal liner (LINUS) devices for the Naval Research Laborotory (NRL). NRL is ...
Rebuilding the Five Megajoule Homopolar Machine at the University of Texas
The role of the 5 MJ homopolar machine at the Center for Electromechanics has changed from that of a pulsed power supply experiment to that of a power supply for various experiments. ·Because of this change in duty, it was ...
The Compensated Pulsed Alternator: Preliminary Test Results
An engineering prototype compensated pulsed alternator (Compulsator) has been designed and fabricated at the Center for Electromechanics of The University of Texas at Austin. The prototype compulsator is designed to drive ...
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 ...
