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 ...
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 ...
The TEXT Energy Storage System
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 ...
