Serial-stacked enhanced railguns are with bigger inductance gradient value than simple ones, which is im-portant to improving the energy efficiency and the railguns' launch force. On the basis that the structure and principles of serial-stacked enhanced railguns are introduced. We calculate the inductance gradient of the en-hanced railguns at low frequency. The result is that with a fixed caliber, the inductance gradient value increas-es as the gap of rails increases, and it decreases as width of the rails increases. On the condition that the cali-ber varies with structure parameters of rails by certain rules, the inductance gradient value increases as the gap of rails increases, and it increases as thickness of the rails increases, as well. The analysis lays the foundation for the serial-stacked enhanced railguns' design, which is of certain value to the railguns' application.
