Fundamental limitations and topological considerations for fast discharge homopolar machines
Fusion research experiments require high energy short duration pulses. A homopolar machine, as an inertial energy storage system, offers an attractive source of energy meeting these requirements. The Energy Storage Group ...
Magnetic Field Diffusion in Fast Discharging Homopolar Machines
(Hemisphere Publishing Corporation, 1977)
The unusually high mechanical and thermal stresses occuring in fast discharging homopolar machines require accurate prediction of high magnetic fields accompanying their operation. Linear methods and ideal configurations ...
The Testing of Sliding Electrical Contacts for Homopolar Generators
Due to the recent interest in homopolar generators as pulsed power supplies, the need has arisen for pulsed brush data on slip rings at high current levels and high surface velocities. Tests were conducted to examine the ...
