Voltage standards

For the most common magnet systems charging voltages between 450V and 3000 are appropriate in order to achieve the pulse frequencies which are required.

Higher voltages are required when:

  • The coil has a very high inductivity (e.g. big magnet systems)
  • The magnetizing impulse shall be high frequency (short cycle times)

Low voltages are required when:

  • Eddy current cause problems (e.g. massive iron parts)
  • Insulations must be thin (e.g. sharp pole transitions)
  • The coil has a very low inductivity (e.g. small multipole systems)
