Operating Modes for Compulsator Based Electromagnetic Launcher Systems
The compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) is a versatile power supply capable of interfacing with the electromagnetic launcher in various ways. The method that has been explored at length with several systems is the ...
Power Supplies for Airborne Laser Systems
This paper investigates the power supply options for an airborne laser system (solid state laser diodes). The application demands a power supply capable of a high repetition rate (1,428 pulses per engagement over 2 s) and ...
Homopolar Pulse Welding: Characterization of Weld Parameters
This paper reports on the continuing research in homopolar pulse welding (HPW) as applied to pipe welding. As part of the NSF/Offshore Technology Research Center (OTRC). The program is designed to develop and commercialize ...
High Current Transmission and Switching System for a Prototype, 20 Tesla, Toroidal Magnet
The Ignition Technology Demonstration (ITD) is a 0.06 scale prototype toroidal field magnet of the proposed full-scale IGNITEX (Ignition Experiment) tokamak. The goal of ITD is to achieve an on-axis magnetic confinement ...
Demonstration of a Prototype, High Field, Single Turn, Toroidal-Magnet System
Very high toroidal magnetic fields have been produced using a single-turn magnet powered by homopolar generators (HPGs). A design goal of a 20 tesla confinement field has been met by the combination of a low impedance ...
