Resistance Welding Using Homopolar Generators as Power Supplies
The University of Texas Center for Electromechanics (CEM) was originally formed to address the pulsed power requirements in the nuclear fusion research areas. It was determined that inertial energy storage using homopolar ...
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 ...
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 ...
Pulsed Power from Inertial Storage with Homopolar Machines for Conversion
Because of its simplicity, an inertial energy storage with a homopolar machine for conversion can provide a relatively inexpensive pulsed-power supply for some important applications. The fundamental principles of operation ...
