Final Design and Manufacture of a Modular Sixty Megajoule Pulsed Homopolar Generator Power Supply
The Center for Electromechanics at The University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) has designed and built high-energy pulsed homopolar generators (HPG's) since 1972. A 5-megajoule (MJ) disc-type HPG was built and tested in 1974 ...
The High Voltage Homopolar Generator
A limitation of iron-core homopolar generators (HPG) is that the magnetic field strength and thus terminal voltage of the generator is dependent on the saturation limit of the material in the magnetic flux path. The Center ...
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 ...
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 ...
Design of a Homopolar Generator for 400 m/s Slip Ring Velocity Brush Testing
Continued development of homopolar generator (HPG) technology by the Center for Electromechanics at the University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) will be aided by the installation of a 400 m/s slip ring velocity, controlled ...
