Testing of a Rapid Fire Compensated Pulsed Alternator System
A compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) has been designed and fabricated to drive a rapid-fire railgun system. Initial testing of the compulsator resulted in the failure of the compensation shield at full speed. An ...
Advanced Compulsator Design
The compulsator or compensated pulsed alternator is the name for a large family of high-energy pulsed-power rotation machinery. It covers an extensive range of currents, voltages, pulse shapes, and also frequency in the ...
Pulse Discharge Control and Machine Protection for a Multi-Discharge Compulsator
A compensated pulse alternator (compulsator) to power railgun research experiment has been designed and built. The author presents the control design considerations and strategies used in the control of proper output pulses ...
