Inertial Energy Storage Research at The University of Texas at Austin
During the past few years the Energy Storage Group at the University of Texas has been doing research on the design, theory, and application of homopolar machines. Two machines (0.5 MJ and 5.0 MJ} have been built and a ...
Electromagnetic Torques and Forces Due to Misalignment Effects and Eddy Currents in the Homopolar Generator Power Supply for the Texas Experimental Tokamak
Asymmetries in the applied magnetic field due to manufacturing tolerances and rotor-stator misalignments can cause significant forces and moments in a homopolar generator. Parasitic eddy-currents in the rotor, brushes and ...
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 ...
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 Mechanical Design of a Compensated Pulsed Alternator Prototype
A prototype of a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) is presently under construction at the Center for Electromechanics (CEM) of The University of Texas at Austin. The unique machine configuration and peak output ...
The Design, Assembly, and Testing of a Desk Model Compensated Pulsed Alternator
The Center for Electromechanics (CEM) at The University of Texas is currently involved in the design, fabrication, and testing of a prototype compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator). This machine, a new concept in ...
