An investigation of the nonsteady interaction of a conducting gas cloud with a given electrical circuit

  • 19 Accesses

Abstract

The behavior of a cloud of conducting gas obtained from a coaxial plasma gun is investigated as it passes through a constant magnetic field. The way that this cloud interacts by induction with an electrical circuit coupled to an ohmic resistance is also studied. Paticular attention is paid to the study of the energy characteristics of the interaction (the energy generated in the ohmic resistance, relations between the plasma energy and Joule dissipation) as a function of the geometry and certain parameters of the electrical circuit. The process is analyzed theoretically for small values of the magnetic Reynolds number. Experimental and theoretical results are compared.
