Simplified Modeling and Measurement Procedures for Electromagnetic Launchers Performances Evaluation

Abstract
In this work, Simplified modeling and measurement procedures for capacitive driven electromagnetic launchers using magnetic armatures are presented. The modeling strategy is based on a successive solving of the circuit equation coupled to a 2D finite element (FEM) magnetostatic computation and the mechanical equation of the armature motion. This leads to a considerable time and memory space saving compared to a time domain magnetodynamic problem computation. The armature velocity is determined through the analysis of the time variation of the induced voltage, due to the armature remanent magnetization, in an auxiliary coil placed at the launcher extremity. The modelling and measurement strategies are implemented and tested on a laboratory developed coil-gun prototype. Modelling and measurement results are provided.
