This paper presents the activity of a Distributed Measurement Laboratory on a challenging topic: the character­ization of current distribution in electromagnetic rail launchers. Such experiments are characterized by strong transient magnetic fields, very fast moving conductors and the use of pulsed power in the GW range. Due to the high complexity of the investigated phenomenon an international network of laboratories is seen as an appropriate approach. The development of a proper network technology and a common platform is an important aspect to make the distributed measurement system efficient. Currently, various European laboratories have formed the European Pulsed Power Laboratories (EPPL) in order to improve their individual capacities and to develop networking measurement systems in the field of pulsed power R&D.

Abstract

This paper presents the activity of a Distributed Measurement Laboratory on a challenging topic: the character­ization of current distribution in electromagnetic rail launchers. Such experiments are characterized by strong transient magnetic fields, very fast moving conductors and the use of pulsed power in the GW range. Due to the high complexity of the investigated phenomenon an international network of laboratories is seen as an appropriate approach. The development of a proper network technology and a common platform is an important aspect to make the distributed measurement system efficient. Currently, various European laboratories have formed the European Pulsed Power Laboratories (EPPL) in order to improve their individual capacities and to develop networking measurement systems in the field of pulsed power R&D.
