The question of the power feed of electromagnets which require high reserves of reactive energy takes on great urgency with the development and creation of powerful accelerators of charged particles. Both a continuous and pulsed power feed of the apparatuses is possible. Both forms of power supply can be accomplished if as the storage devices of reactive energy, capacitive banks or electrical machine apparatus are used. In the development of electric-machine energy storage devices with the use of synchronous and homopolar generators, attention began to be paid to the induction asynchronous machine. Investigations on the use of induction generator in pulsed systems for the charging of capacitors are at present being conducted. The experimental works carried out in this direction are indicative of the prospect of similar synthetic schemes. Indicated in work is the expediency of the use of the induction generator with a capacitive excitation as the source of high pulse powers, and examined is the possibility of the complete conversion of kinetic energy of the rotating masses into electromagnetic energy during one pulse.
