High Strain Insulation Systems for Compulsator Rotors
As the power density requirement for new compulsator (CPA) designs increases, designers are driven to use more composites to reduce mass, spin the rotors faster to store more energy, and operate the machine at higher ...
Continued Testing of the Cannon Caliber Electromagnetic Gun System (CCEMG)
The cannon caliber electromagnetic gun system is based upon a compulsator driven 30 mm rapid fire railgun system. The objective of the program was to develop a compact, lightweight test bed capable of launching three, five ...
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 ...
