The model scale compulsator is a high speed (12000 rpm), high energy rotating machine. The rotor is a highly optimized pulsed power electrical machine consisting of electrical windings, slip rings, and highly pre-stressed composite bandings. This paper describes the design of this machine from the standpoint of rotordynamics. The rotor is supported on oil-lubricated hybrid ceramic duplex ball bearings, which in turn are supported on compliant squeeze film dampers. Test results are presented for both mechanical checkout runs and full energy discharge experiments. Also described is experience gained from low speed balancing on a commercial balancing machine, followed by high speed in situ balancing
