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 ...
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 ...
Circuit and Magnetic Analysis for a System of Faraday Rotator Coils Driven by a Two Spool, Four-Rotor Homopolar Generator
As part of a cost optimization study, a computer based circuit analysis is performed to determine the energy storage requirements a homopolar generator must meet to drive an inductive load of Faraday rotator coils, which ...
Inexpensive Inertial Energy Storage Utilizing Homopolar Motor-Generators
The pulsed power demands of the current generation of controlled thermonuclear fusion experiments have prompted a great interest in reliable, low cost, pulsed power systems. The Energy Storage Group at the University of ...
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 ...
