The Design, Assembly, and Testing of a Desk Model Compensated Pulsed Alternator
MetadataShow full item record
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 pulsed power technology, utilizes the principles of magnetic induction and flux compression to convert rotational energy directly into electrical energy. The subject of this paper is a one-fifth scale version of the CEM prototype. This desk model compulsator is a portable demonstration machine designed to operate in the same fashion as the full scale model.
