Title

Compact Autonomous Completely Explosive Pulsed Power System

Abstract

A new concept for compact autonomous completely explosive pulsed power systems is presented. This concept utilizes the physical effect of transverse shock wave demagnetization of Nd2Fe14B high-energy hard ferromagnets and magnetic flux compression. This compact pulsed power system contains two stages. The first stage is a high-power transverse shock wave ferromagnetic generator (FMG) that serves as a primary power source (seed source). The second stage is a compact magnetic flux compression generator (FCG) that serves as a pulsed power amplifier. Experimental data are presented for operation of a compact completely explosive system based on the FMG seed source and a helical FCG. ©2007 IEEE.
