Alternative power sources for a coilgun?
I was wondering if there was any other method to power the firing coil of a single stage coilgun without using capacitors. My main reasoning is to try to reduce recharge time, and to also avoid making massive groups of capacitors and finding a place to put them.
It needs to be able to be powered by some form of battery, meaning I could connect voltage to this circuit (1.2 volts up to 12 volts. I'm not picky) and shouldn't consist of hard to find components.
I'm not looking for the greatest efficiency in the world, just making a step (okay, maybe a stomp) toward building a 'capless coilgun'.
