Title

A New Concept of Explosive Pulsed Power: Design of Macro Primary Power Sources Based on Elementary Miniature Shock-Wave Ferromagnetic Cells

Abstract

A new concept for constructing explosive-driven primary power sources is proposed. The power source is designed as a sequence of identical elementary miniature explosivedriven primary power cells that connect to each other in series or in parallel. Each explosive-driven cell contains a miniature ferromagnetic generator (FMG) based on the effect of transverse shock-wave demagnetization of an Nd2Fe-B hard ferromagnet. Experimental results are presented for high-voltage system utilizing FMGs containing 12.9 cm3 ferromagnet energy-carrying elements. The developed two-cell system produces a high voltage pulse with an amplitude of 32 kV and rise time of 3.5 us. ©2008 IEEE.
