Kinetic Energy Technology
The Strategic Defense Initiative Kinetic Energy Weapons (KEW) program incorporates two distinct technologies: missiles (near term) and electromagnetic launchers (long term). Since missiles already have an established ...
Final Design and Manufacture of a Modular Sixty Megajoule Pulsed Homopolar Generator Power Supply
The Center for Electromechanics at The University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) has designed and built high-energy pulsed homopolar generators (HPG's) since 1972. A 5-megajoule (MJ) disc-type HPG was built and tested in 1974 ...
Billet Heating with the Homopolar Generator
Forging billets are presently brought from room temperature to forging temperature using one of three heating methods -- indirect heating in a furnace, either fuel-fired or electric; direct electric resistance heating; or ...
The Compensated Pulsed Alternator Program: A Review
Since 1978 the Center for Electromechanics at the University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) has pursued a program to develop a class of electromechanical devices, rated for pulsed duty, which are capable of delivering one to ...
Space Harmonic Analysis of Magnetic Fields in a Compensated Pulsed Alternator or an Active Rotary Flux Compressor
This paper discusses the space harmonic Fourier analysis of magnetic fields for a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) or an active rotary flux compressor (ARFC), which has been applied for two particular sets of ...
The Design, Assembly, and Testing of an Active Rotary Flux Compressor
A 20-cm diameter rotor active rotary flux compressor has been fabricated at the Center for Electromechanics, the University of Texas at Austin, (CEM-UT) to verify the predicted advantages of fully laminated ferromagnetic ...
Billet Heating with The Homopolar Generator
Recent and ongoing research concerned with homopolar generators operated in a pulse mode and making use of kinetic energy storage principles has led to the application of these techniques to forging billet heating. Cylindrical ...
