It is shown that by the end of the operating cycle, a significant part of the energy is stored in the capacitive energy storage device, and is also converted into thermal energy of the armature and inductor. With a significant number of operating cycles, an unacceptably high temperature rise of LPIEC active elements occurs. To solve this problem, intensive cooling of the winding of the inductor, the movable armature or both of them, as well as an increase in the pulse repetition period are used. It has been experimentally established that when the LPIEC is operating in a cyclic mode, the inductor winding with a steel frame blown with air is heated more slowly than the winding with an insulating frame. The experimental dependences with an accuracy of 6 % coincide with the calculated results. A constructive scheme of the LPIEC of cyclic action with intensive cooling of the stationary winding of the inductor has been developed. <strong>Results.</strong> A mathematical model of the LPIEC of cyclic action is developed, taking into account a complex of interrelated electromechanical and thermal processes. The solutions of its equations are represented in a recurrent form. The electromechanical and energy processes of LPIEC, which arise during the direct course of the working cycle, are investigated. It is shown that for a considerable number of operating cycles, unacceptably high temperature excesses of active elements of the LPIEC are observed. It is shown that intensive cooling of the winding of the inductor, the movable armature or both of them, and also the increase in the pulse repetition period ensure the temperature stabilization of the LPIEC. Measurements of the temperature on the surface of the winding of the inductor LPIEC during cyclic operation are carried out. A constructive scheme of the LPIEC of cyclic action with intensive cooling of the stationary winding of the inductor has been developed. <strong>Originality.</strong> A mathematical model of the LPIEC of cyclic action is developed, taking into account a complex of interrelated electromechanical and thermal processes. The solutions of its equations are represented in a recurrent form. It is shown that by the end of the working cycle a significant part of the energy is converted into thermal energy of the armature and inductor. It is determined that for a significant number of operating cycles, unacceptably high temperature excesses of active elements of the LPIEC are observed. It is shown that intense cooling of active elements, as well as an increase in the pulse repetition period, ensure the temperature stabilization of the LPIEC. A design scheme of the LPIEC with intensive cooling of the stationary winding of the inductor has been developed. <strong>Practical value.</strong> It is shown that by thermal cooling of at least one of the active elements and by increasing the pulse repetition period, the temperature stabilization of the LPIEC is ensured. A constructive scheme of the LPIEC of cyclic action with intensive cooling of the stationary winding of the inductor has been developed. </em>}, number={5}, journal={Electrical Engineering & Electromechanics}, author={Bolyukh, V.
