Air Core Transformers for Use in Flux Compression Generator Power Conditioning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Flux compression generators (FCGs), are unable to drive high impedance loads efficiently. To ensure that the output from an FCG can drive a high impedance load, an impedance transformation is necessary. This impedance transformation is known as the power conditioning stage of the FCG. Air core transformers were developed to eventually be used as a power conditioning stage for an FCG. Two types of air core transformers were developed, known as the C-TACT and COAX-ACT. The design and fabrication of these types of ACTs are discussed, along with experimental results and simulation. Finally, a comparison is made between the developed ACTs.
