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. ...
Homopolar Motor-Generator for Inexpensive Inertial Energy Storage
During the last six months, the Energy Storage Group has completed the assembly of the five megajoule homopolar motorgenerator and begun an extensive testing and evaluation program on the unit. The study of the fundamental ...
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 ...
Homopolar Generator Powered High Field Magnet Experiment for the Ignitex Fusion Device
The design of a scaled down prototype of the IGNITEX (Texas Ignition Experiment) toroidal field (TF) magnet is discussed. The IGNITEX concept is a single-tum tokamak designed to produce and control an ignited plasma with ...
The High Voltage Homopolar Generator
A limitation of iron-core homopolar generators (HPG) is that the magnetic field strength and thus terminal voltage of the generator is dependent on the saturation limit of the material in the magnetic flux path. The Center ...
Analysis of Defective Hydrostatic Radial Bearings for Five Megajoule Homopolar Generator
(American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 1980)
Hydrostatic bearings were designed for a five megajoule homopolar generator since they offered the advantages of low shaft friction, high load capacity and high stiffness independent of shaft speed. The original bearings ...
Design of a Homopolar Generator for 400 m/s Slip Ring Velocity Brush Testing
Continued development of homopolar generator (HPG) technology by the Center for Electromechanics at the University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) will be aided by the installation of a 400 m/s slip ring velocity, controlled ...
A New High Current Laboratory and Pulsed Homopolar Generator Power Supply at The University of Texas
The University of Texas at Austin is constructing a spacious facility for research in pulse power technology at the Balcones Research Center, located in north Austin. The arrangement and capacity of the facility are intended ...
