Abstract:

The report describes the construction and testing of new motor generator power supplies and filter inductors for use with the magnetic balance system. Motor generator output is or - 380 volts with a current limit of or - 300 amps and a power limit of 50 hp. Connected to the lift and drag circuits the supplies were tested up to 144 amperes in drag and 244 amperes in lift. Calculations of the performance of the 200 ampere 1.6 mh inductors as coupling networks are also presented as well as Q omegaLR vs frequency measured for the coils. Measured Q at 20 KC was 660.
