The authors detail the SCR control circuit for a superconducting magnetic pulse generator. Two different designs for the generator's coil were studied. Both used liquid nitrogen as a coolant. The first design employs a high T/sub c/ superconducting thin film in the coil. A twenty-five milli Tesla pulse could be generated at a frequency of approximately=100 Hz using a coil current of 25 A. The second design utilizes aluminium material for the coil and generates a pulse of 1.01 Tesla at 250 Hz… CONTINUE READING
