Fired Coilgun Results
1 and 2 illustrate the characteristic surfaces for velocity and
efficiency. Note the difference in the orientation of the axes between
figs 1 and 2. Fig 3 shows the coil current during the entire discharge.
Again we can see that the change of projectile position has a slight
affect on the peak current.
1. Velocity surface with delta and charging voltage as parameters.
2. Efficiency surface with delta and charging voltage as parameters.
3. Complete coil current pulses for various launch delta.
