An Application Guide for Compulsators
Focus toward advanced mobile tactical configurations for railgun power supplies has resulted in the evolution of five compulsator generations in the past 15 years. Unfortunately, the rapid maturation of the technology has ...
High-Speed Compulsator Stator Thermal Management
The compulsator stator armature winding includes multiple conductor layers. Each conductor layer is made of insulation wraps and transposed aluminum litz wire bundles with epoxy potting compound between the wires and the ...
An electromagnetic gun power supply as a component of an electric ship power system
An electromagnetic gun provides a new component that must be integrated into the power system of an electric ship. An interesting topology for the power supply is a set of pulsed alternators with sufficient energy stored ...
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 ...
Continued Testing of the Cannon Caliber Electromagnetic Gun System (CCEMG)
The cannon caliber electromagnetic gun system is based upon a compulsator driven 30 mm rapid fire railgun system. The objective of the program was to develop a compact, lightweight test bed capable of launching three, five ...
Brush/Slip Ring Current Collector Performance and Anomalies During Compulsator Commissioning
During recent tests associated with a model scale compulsator development program at The University of Texas at Austin Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM), the performance of severe duty trailing arm brush current collectors ...
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 ...
