Inductive store with electromagnetic current multiplication
Abstract
One of the important problems involved in developing high power supply sources based on inductive stores is current multiplication. In many inductive stores a mechanical current multiplication system is used. The advantages of this system are that an inductive store can be built with a conductor of minimum weight and a high energy transfer coefficient to the load (efficiency). However, in this type of inductive store, the number of switches is governed by the current multiplication factor. Increasing the multiplication factor involves increasing the number of switches and thus making the system more complex and lowering its reliability. An alternative version, the electromagnetic current multiplication system in which the inductive store is a multiturn coil surrounded by an electromagnetic shield is analyzed and discussed.
