Abstract : The energy storage capacity at the Arnold Engineering Development Center for hypersonic wind tunnel testing has increased in recent years from 10 to the 5th to 10 to the 8th power joules. A technical conference was held on February 4 and 5, 1963, at the Institute for Defense Analyses to review the technology of pulse power generation and energy storage. The unclassified non- proprietary papers on inductive energy storage, superconducting coils, magnetohydrodynamics, explosive transducers, and switching are presented.
