One Millisecond Discharge Time Homopolar Machine (FDX)
All information now available concerning fast discharge homopolar machines is only theoretical. No such machine has ever been built and existing electrical machines do not approach the extremely severe conditions required ...
Magnetic Field Calculations for High-Energy Pulsed Power Supplies
The accurate calculation of the magnetic fields steady or rapidly varying is extremely important in designing pulsed power supplies for controlled thermonuclear fusion experiments, lasers, etc., where the traditional ...
Design, Fabrication and Testing of a Fast Discharge Homopolar Machine (FDX)
The Fast Discharge Experiment (FDX) is a 0.36 MJ, 200 V homopolar machine designed to discharge in one millisecond. All components, including dual brush actuation systems, a room-temperature 2 x 106 A-t pulsed copper coil, ...
The Design of Homopolar Motor-Generators for Pulsed Power Applications
The need for inexpensive pulsed power for fusion research is becoming more intense as the size of these experiments rapidly increases. Nearly all experimental investigations now proposed require energy stores of hundreds ...
Testing and Analysis of a Fast Discharge Homopolar Machine (FDX)
The Fast Discharge Experiment (FDX) is a 0.36 MJ, 200 V homopolar machine designed to discharge in one millisecond. This experiment is intended to establish the fundamental limitations involved in extracting energy in the ...
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 ...
