A new design idea for a compact, autonomous, completely explosive pulsed power system is proposed. The system is based on the shock wave ferromagnetic generator (FMG) as a primary power source and a loop magnetic flux compression generator (LFCG) as a pulsed power amplifier. The FMG primary power source utilizes the effect of transverse shock wave demagnetization of Nd2Fe14B high-energy hard ferromagnets to produce the seed current. Results are presented of an experimental study and digital simulation of operation of the FMG-LFCG system
