Title: Magnetic-field sensing coil embedded in ceramic for measuring ambient magnetic field

Abstract

A magnetic pick-up coil for measuring magnetic field with high specific sensitivity, optionally with an electrostatic shield (24), having coupling elements (22) with high winding packing ratio, oriented in multiple directions, and embedded in ceramic material for structural support and electrical insulation. Elements of the coil are constructed from green ceramic sheets (200) and metallic ink deposited on surfaces and in via holes of the ceramic sheets. The ceramic sheets and the metallic ink are co-fired to create a monolithic hard ceramic body (20) with metallized traces embedded in, and placed on exterior surfaces of, the hard ceramic body. The compact and rugged coil can be used in a variety of environments, including hostile conditions involving ultra-high vacuum, high temperatures, nuclear and optical radiation, chemical reactions, and physically demanding surroundings, occurring either individually or in combinations.

  • This patent describes a casing wall inspection device controlled at an earth surface position for continual testing of well casing, comprising: a main coil axially aligned with the casing axis; means for energizing the main coil with an alternating current voltage to produce a primary flux distribution enveloping the casing adjacent the main coil; a plurality of radial sensing coils disposed in equi-spaced circumfery with each radial sensing coil placed radially outward from the main coil and providing a radial output; a plurality of flux leakage sensing coils supported in equal spacing in surround of the radial sensing coils andmore » spring-urged against the casing wall with each providing a flux leakage output; transmitter means receiving input of the plural radial outputs and plural flux leakage outputs and transmitting a signal containing the radial and flux leakage outputs; and control means at the earth surface position for receiving the signal for processing to derive a continual evaluation of casing wall thickness.« less
  • Disclosed is a segmented toroidal field coil for use in a tokamak-type reactor and a method for forming the coil. Each toroidal field coil winding is segmented into two or more segments with a connection means provided at the end of each segment for electrically connecting the segments together and for joining consecutive adjacent segments. The coil segments are electrically conducting and will, therefore, induce a toroidal magnetic field when its feed points are connected to a power source. The toroidal field coil of the present invention maximizes heat flow from the plasma region of the reactor to the externalmore » blanket by eliminating bulky crossover connections from coil to coil that could otherwise restrict the heat flow. The present invention discloses a simple and efficient method for forming a toroidal field coil assembly that eliminates costly final machining such as precision twisting.« less
  • Method and equipment for transferring energy to or from a direct-current superconducting field coil to change the magnetic field generated by the coil in which a second direct-current superconducting coil is used as a storage coil, and energy transfer between the field coil and the storage coil is effected automatically in dependence upon a control program. Preferably, the control program acts upon a variable transformer which is coupled by respective rectifier/inverters to the field and storage coils and also serves for intital supply of energy to the coils.
  • A single trigger/shunt coil is utilized for combined induced magnetic field triggering and shunt impedance. The single coil connected in parallel with the high temperature superconducting element, is designed to generate a circulating current in the parallel circuit during normal operation to aid triggering the high temperature superconducting element to quench in the event of a fault. The circulating current is generated by an induced voltage in the coil, when the system current flows through the high temperature superconducting element.
