Recent efforts have resulted in a major reconstruction of the EMACK homopolar generator (HPG). The rotor, discharge brush, drive, and lubricating systems have been completely replaced. The brush actuation system has been substantially modified. The control computer, a programmable logic controller (PLC), has undergone major software and hardware revisions. The modifications made to the various subsystems are described, as well as the results of the testing of those systems. Also reported are the results of characterization testing of the HPG itself, and the development of predictive algorithms to assist the operator in selecting correct operational parameters for a given experiment
