A Systems Tester for Compact Homopolar Generator Component Development
To facilitate the development of more compact homopolar generators (HPGs), the compact HPG systems tester was designed and built to develop the system and component technology necessary to design HPGs having energy densities ...
High Speed, High Current, Copper-Finger Brushes for Pulsed Homopolar Generator Service
ln continuing research into higher energy density, higher current rated pulsed homopolar generators (HPG's), solid copper fingers are explored as sliding electrical contacts to slip speeds of 300 m/s and collector area ...
Self Excitation of Iron Core Homopolar Generators
In the interest of reducing homopolar generator (HPG) auxiliary requirements, a self-excited field coil for pulsed duty, iron-core HPG has been developed and tested at the Center for Electromechanics at The University of ...
Electromechanical Analysis of the Technology Demonstrator for the Ignitex Fusion Device
The Texas Ignition Experiment (IGNITEX) device is a single turn coil tokamak designed to produce and control an ignited plasma using ohmic heating alone. The proposed high strength magnet system operates at a magnetic field ...
Development and Testing of Experimental Materials and Designs for Pulsed and Continuous Duty High Current, High Slip Speed, Generator Contacts
The development of homopolar generators (HPGs) capable of producing high currents at high slip speeds requires current collectors that exhibit good electrical properties as well as good frictional properties at high ...
