9 Stage Induced Voltage
A multistage induced
voltage triggering system has one main problem, namely 'cross-talk'. When a drive
coil is fired not only is there an induced voltage in the drive coils' own sensor
but also in the sensors surrounding it. This happens due to the mutual inductance
between all the coils in the system. In order to resolve this problem there needs
to be some form of signal filtering whereby the triggering system only 'sees'
the sensor coil which is next in the sequence.
forms the basis for investigations into the operational behaviour of multistage
induced voltage triggering systems.
The images below
shows the accelerator tube along with the coil spacer supports. The slots are
cut on both sides and measure 3mm wide by 25mm long. The main purpose of the spacers
is to provide somewhere to anchor the ends of the coil wire.
