  • Passive Mitigation of Load Debris in a Magnetically Insulated Transmission Line

    The Z driver at Sandia National Laboratories delivers one to two megajoules of electromagnetic energy inside its ~10 cm radius final feed in 100 ns. The high current (~20 MA) at small diameter produces magnetic pressures well above yield strengths for metals. The metal conductors stay in place due to inertia long enough to deliver current to the load. Within milliseconds however, fragments of metal escape the load region at high velocity. Much of the hardware and diagnostics inside the vacuum chamber is protected from this debris by blast shields with small view ports, and fast-closing valves. The water-vacuum insulator requires different protection because the transmission line debris shield should not significantly raise the inductance or perturb the self- magnetically insulated electron flow. This report shows calculations and results from a design intended to protect the insulator assembly.

  • Swiss chemical industry installations in China

    The Swiss chemical industry is investing heavily in China. The projects in China are being designed and built by in-house engineering departments so the Swiss influence is evident and known techniques are being employed. In Switzerland, 95% of the areas with explosion risks are assigned to Zone 2; while Zone 1 is prevalent in the rest of Europe. The Swiss chemical companies started designing their processes totally enclosed. From the Swiss industry's viewpoint, this greatly simplifies installation. The companies do everything possible to transfer their zoning philosophy to the plants they build overseas. For installations in Zone 2, costs are kept low thanks to the ability to use individually installed components and devices in protection type nonsparking "restricted breathing enclosure" and "n-pressurized enclosure". Using cables instead of conduits can reduce costs even more. Even though cables are sometimes called upon to withstand harsh physical treatment, experience with them has not produced any drawbacks such its increased damage or more malfunctions.

An improved Fourier algorithm is presented in this paper, in this way the decaying DC component and high harmonic are all completely filtrated. The block diagram of the device structure is also presented. The experimental device shows that this method is reliable and accurate and has a small computation capacity.

  • Data logger apparatus for stray current measurement of subway and power line

    In present, most of metallic structures (gas pipeline, oil pipeline, water pipeline, etc) are running parallel with subway and power line in Korea. Moreover subway system and power line make a stray current due to electrical corrosion on metallic structures. The owner of metallic structures has a burden of responsibility for the protection of corrosion and the prevention against big accident such as gas explosion or soil pollution and so on. So, they have to measure and analyze the data about P/S(Pipe to Soil) potential, amplitude of stray current, point of source of stray current and so. In this paper, results of development about data logger apparatus for measurement stray current of subway and power line are presented.

  • Parameters for validation of a NEMP hardened facility

    The aim of this theoretical research paper is to bring out the critical aspects of parameters for validation requirements for hardening of a typical C4ISR facility against disruption and damage from electromagnetic pulses (NEMP) produced by nuclear blasts. The purpose of NEMP hardening system is to protect critical military/civil systems such as C4ISR facilities / C4I2 systems, Command and control centers of Air Defence and Communications hubs from the effects of intense electromagnetic effects caused as a result of a nuclear explosion. In the literature, a lot of written material is available on the effects of NEMP, properties of NEMP, effects of surface burst NEMP, effects of high altitude NEMP bursts, effects of NEMP on facility systems, grounding and shielding procedures. But testing and validation aspects are not defined properly. Data availability on validation procedure and parameters to be validated are very rare. In this paper an attempt is made to define the parameters quantitatively for validation of a NEMP hardened facility. Main purpose of this paper is to propose, standardize and quantify the parameters for hardness against the NEMP effects for validating a typical facility such as C4ISR.
