Storage and Transfer of Energy for Pulsed Power Applications
MetadataShow full item record
A survey of the various methods of energy-storage for pulsed-power applications, such as thermonuclear fusion research, is presented. Costa and range of applications, in terms of energy storage capacity and discharge time, of these devices are given, and certain related problems are discussed briefly. An approach to the mathematical modelling of pulsed networks and pulsed electrical machines in which magnetic diffusion is significant is included. Fast discharge homopolar machines for use with inertial energy-storage systems, are discussed in some detail. Reference is made to some related activities at The University of Texas at Austin.
