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 ...
Preliminary Engineering Design of a Pulsed Homopolar Generator Power Supply
A 200 megajoule 500 volt homopolar generator system is proposed as the inertial storage-conversion device for the Texas Experimental Tokamak (TEXT). The initial engineering design of a 50 megajoule 125 volt homopolar ...
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 ...
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 ...
