This monograph describes lumped-element modelling techniques for inductively-coupled pulsed accelerators, starting from the basic physical description of the various processes and then bringing all the pieces together into solutions. Coilguns, inductive pulsed plasma thrusters, and compact toroids have each been individually studied using the methods used in this monograph.
This monograph is of interest to researchers and graduate students in physics, engineering, and mathematics presently studying inductively-coupled pulsed accelerators.
- The first book to unify the lumped-element modelling techniques for various inductively-coupled pulsed accelerator implementations.
- Discussion of modelling different accelerators in a coherent, rigorous manner, demonstrating the similarities and differences for each type.
- Authored by authorities in the field.
