Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (Impact Factor: 1.07). 01/2001; 40:1108-1113. DOI: 10.1143/JJAP.40.1108

ABSTRACT In this study, the impedance characteristics of the wire-plate pulsed
plasma reactor for deSOx and deNOx were
investigated. The experiments were carried out with a small size reactor
(15 Nm3/h) and a prototype reactor (2000 Nm3/h,
0.5 MW) using a rotary spark gap switch and magnetic pulse compression
(MPC) modulator, respectively. The impedance characteristics of the
reactor were mainly varied by varying the charge voltage, wire length
and wire-plate distance. With increasing charge voltage and wire length,
the reactor impedance was decreased. From these experiments, the best
condition for the impedance matching between the pulse generator and the
reactor was achieved. In addition, we performed an analysis of the
nonlinear reactor impedance on the basis of results of the experiment
and electromagnetic transients program (EMTP) study. From these, we
found that even though the electric equivalent circuit of the reactor
may be described by a nonlinear resistance in parallel with a varying
capacitance, the reactor impedance could be approximately analyzed using
the equivalent resistance value of the flat zone and the reactor’s
initial capacitance.

    ABSTRACT: A low inductance circuit has been fabricated in order to obtain shorter time to saturation during core unsaturation and current pulses with shorter widths during core saturation. B-H curves have been derived from the measured voltage and current waveforms. Characteristics of the magnetic core for pulsed-power generators have been investigated and the Electromagnetic Transient Program (EMTP) simulation has been carried out in order to determine the effects of leakage current on the energy efficiency of a 3-staged magnetic pulse compressor (MPC). As results, the derived B-H curves show the following characteristics: a high ratio of unsaturated to saturated permeability (mu<sub>un</sub>/mu<sub>sat</sub>), a maximum flux swing of about 2.55 T, a high ratio of remanent flux density to saturation magnetic flux density (B<sub>r</sub>/B<sub>s</sub>) and low core loss. And, it is found that mu<sub>un</sub> increases with time to saturation and that mu<sub>sat</sub> is strongly influenced by the stray inductances of the core. By applying custom characteristics to each stage in EMTP simulation, more practical energy transfer in MPC is obtained.

    ABSTRACT: A low-inductance circuit has been fabricated in order to investigate loss characteristics of the magnetic cores under fast pulse magnetization. The B-H curves have been derived from the measured voltage and current waveforms, and the losses of the magnetic cores have been derived using a novel method to determine time to saturation. The derived B-H curves show the following characteristics: a high ratio of unsaturated to saturated permeability (mu<sub>un</sub>/mu<sub>sat</sub>), a maximum flux swing of about 2.5 T, a high ratio of remanent flux density to saturation magnetic flux density (B<sub>r</sub>/B<sub>s</sub>), and a low core loss. Furthermore, the core loss increases as the charging energy increases for a fixed capacitance, which means that the core loss is inversely proportional to the time to saturation, whereas the percentile core loss decreases as the charging energy increases. The hysteresis loss is proportional to frequency, and the eddy current loss can be neglected for the used core. The dissipated energy during core saturation is consistently 3.0% of the charging energy for each frequency, which indicates that the core is saturated and behaves as an air core.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a pulsed-power generator that consists of a magnetic pulse compressor (MPC) and a Blumlein-type pulse forming network (BPFN) has been developed. The pulsed-power generator can be operated with high repetition rate, long lifetime, and high reliability for water treatments such as sterilization of microorganisms, decomposition of harmful materials, and ozone generation. An informative explanation about the simulation methodology using electromagnetic transient program was presented in order to give guidance for more efficient design of the pulsed-power generator with MPC and BPFN. The comparison study of the simulation result with the experimental result was carried out. As a result, it was found that the simulation results and the experimental results with the manufactured MPC and BPFN showed a reasonable agreement. In addition, a large volume of streamer discharge was successfully generated in water with the developed system
