Title

Dominant Role of the Explosively Expanding Armature on the Initiation of Electric Discharge in Magnetic Flux Compression Generators

Abstract

Electric discharge within the magnetic flux compression generator (FCG) is one of the energy losses mechanisms in the system. In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate that the explosively expanding armature of the FCG plays a dominant role in the formation of plasma and initiation of electric discharge inside the FCG. ©2009 IEEE.
