Abstract:

A simplified electrolytic tank has been constructed that serves as a relatively easy and reasonably accurate analog method of designing a magnetic field configuration to be used in a plasma containment device. The current density in the electrolyte is directly proportional to the magnetic flux density in the coils and equations have been derived from this relationship by which flux density, magnetomotive force, inductance, total flux, and energy in the coils can be found from tank measurements. The detailed analysis of a specific magnetic field problem is given. Author
