An electromagnetic gun power supply as a component of an electric ship power system
An electromagnetic gun provides a new component that must be integrated into the power system of an electric ship. An interesting topology for the power supply is a set of pulsed alternators with sufficient energy stored ...
The Compensated Pulsed Alternator Program: A Review
Since 1978 the Center for Electromechanics at the University of Texas at Austin (CEM-UT) has pursued a program to develop a class of electromechanical devices, rated for pulsed duty, which are capable of delivering one to ...
Space Harmonic Analysis of Magnetic Fields in a Compensated Pulsed Alternator or an Active Rotary Flux Compressor
This paper discusses the space harmonic Fourier analysis of magnetic fields for a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) or an active rotary flux compressor (ARFC), which has been applied for two particular sets of ...
Invention from Research
The Compensated Pulsed Alternator: Preliminary Test Results
An engineering prototype compensated pulsed alternator (Compulsator) has been designed and fabricated at the Center for Electromechanics of The University of Texas at Austin. The prototype compulsator is designed to drive ...
Fundamental Limitations and Design Considerations for Compensated Pulsed Alternators
Since the beginning of a project intended to demonstrate the feasibility of using a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) as a power supply for NOVA and other solid state laser systems, a great deal of interest has ...
The Mechanical Design of a Compensated Pulsed Alternator Prototype
A prototype of a compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) is presently under construction at the Center for Electromechanics (CEM) of The University of Texas at Austin. The unique machine configuration and peak output ...
The Design, Assembly, and Testing of a Desk Model Compensated Pulsed Alternator
The Center for Electromechanics (CEM) at The University of Texas is currently involved in the design, fabrication, and testing of a prototype compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator). This machine, a new concept in ...
Applying a Compensated Pulsed Alternator to a Flashlamp Load for NOVA-Part II
The compensated pulsed alternator (compulsator) has been proposed as a possible alternative to capacitor banks for driving xenon flashlamps for pumping neodymium glass laser amplifiers for NOVA. An algorithm for sizing ...
