Abstract

Computer simulation is used to investigate the transient performance of induction-type coilguns as a function of the dimensions, material properties, type of supply, firing sequence of switching elements, and connections of drive coils. The paper deals with the performance of both generator-driven and capacitor-driven coilguns.
