Title: A multistage distributed energy bench-top electromagnetic launcher
Author: McDaniel, Bryan
Abstract: A multi -stage energy distributed bench -top electromagnetic launcher is a way of testing the re -striking issues , which affect the velocity of the armature , associated with an electromagnetic launcher . Additional advantages of the multi -stage energy distributed scheme include a reduction in resistive losses and less residual inductive energy stored in the rails . An electromagnetic launcher is also known as a railgun . The bench top railgun used in a two stage energy distributed system sets the parameters and design for a five stage energy distributed system . The tests done on the five stage energy distributed system demonstrated real time switching of downstream stages . In addition to instrumentation control , diagnostics were built including Rogowski coils , B -dots , and a flux ruler . After the solid armature tests were completed , construction was started on a free running arc experiment . The results from this experiment will set up the parameters and design for a multi -stage energy distributed free running arc railgun .
