Abstract:

The estimated weight advantage of designing a superconducting homopolar acyclic machine with a saturatedd magnetic shield is presented, and the possible power or flux loss due to the saturation of the iron is reported. A method of estimating the magnetic field at 15.23 centimeters from the saturate magnetic shield is shown in addition to indicating how the fields at large distances vary for hexapole and quadrupole designs.
