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 ...
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, ...
