Cross-platform validation of notional baseline architecture models of naval electric ship power systems
To support efforts in assessing the relative merit of alternative power system architectures for future naval combatants, the Electric Ship Research and Development Consortium (ESRDC) has developed notional baseline models ...
High speed induction motor and inverter drive for flywheel energy storage
The use of flywheels to store energy is a technology which is centuries old. The confluence of several modern technologies has resulted in flywheels becoming a viable solution for the needs of the transportation, electric ...
Electromagnetic and Structural Analyses of Electric Gun and Integrated Launch Package Systems
The authors describe electromagnetic and structural analyses of electric gun and integrated launch packages. Models presented were developed for the Sabot Launched Electric Gun Kinetic Energy projectile (SLEKE) program and ...
Fusion Testing Device
A recently proposed fusion testing device called IGNITEX is described in this paper. The original idea was recently proposed by M.N. Rosenbluth, W.A. Weldon, and H.H. Woodson. The bases for the concept are B. Coppi's ideas ...
Limiting Design Parameters For Cooled, High Speed, High Current Density Sliding Contacts
For advanced design of lightweight multi-megawatt dc continuous duty generators, high speed and high current density must be obtained in the sliding contacts. Limiting design parameters must be recognized to direct research ...
Fabrication of a Rotor for a Field Based, Self-Excited Compulsator Power Supply for a 9 MJ Railgun Demonstrator
Fabrication of a high-speed, self-excited air-core rotor for a field based compulsator is well under way. The compulsator is to be used as a power supply for firing 9 MJ projectiles from a skid mounted electromagnetic ...
Some Benefits of Pulsed Alternators as Electromagnetic Gun Power Supplies on Power Systems for Future Electric Ships
An electromagnetic gun provides a new component to be integrated into the power system of an electric ship. Electromagnetic guns have been fired successfully using either capacitors, inductors, or rotating machines to store ...
Experimental Test bed to De-Risk the Navy Advanced Development Model
This paper presents a reduced scale demonstration test-bed at the University of Texas’ Center for Electromechanics (UT-CEM) which is well equipped to support the development and assessment of the anticipated Navy Advanced ...
Energy storage generator thermal analysis for an electromagnetic aircraft launch system
This paper presents thermal analysis predictions of a main generator, which is a primary part of an energy storage subsystem of an electromagnetic aircraft launch system. Three-dimensional finite element thermal models for ...
