Applying a Homopolar Power Supply to a Tokamak
MetadataShow full item record
The new Texas Experimental Tokamak (TEXT) will use homopolar generators as a pulsed power source. The high current, low voltage output of such a source calls for unusual solutions to achieve a proper match to toroidal toil system and ohmic heating system. The paper discusses several possible alternatives. The solutions chosen for both the toroidal and the heating coil system are described including some of the salient components such as switches and power electronics.
