1 shows the resulting speeds for each projectile type.
Open Loop Speed (m/s)
| Optical Speed (m/s)
|4 mm Cored
|6 mm Cored
1. Comparison of maximum open loop speed and optical speed.
we can see that the speed values are still close to the optimal speeds obtained
using the open loop triggering method.
1. Voltage, current and power curves.
we can see that the current reaches a peak of about 150A and the peak internal
source loss is close to 1700W - more than double that of coil C.

2. Efficiency comparisons for solid projectile.
we can see the price, in terms of efficiency, paid for the small additional speed
offered by this coil over coil C. These efficiency values are the worst of all
