Small helical magnetic flux compression generators: Experiments and analysis
2007 (English)In: PPPS-2007 - Pulsed Power Plasma Science 2007, IEEE , 2007, 1151-1154 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents experimental results with helical magnetic flux-compression generators (FCGs). FCGs convert the chemical energy bond in explosives into electric energy. The generator had an initial inductance of 23 μH and was operated into a load of 0.2 μH. The generator is charged with 0.27 kg of high-explosives (PBXN-5). Various types of diagnostics were used to monitor the operation of the generator, including current probes, optical fibres, and piezo gauges. The results are analysed and the expansion of the armature compared with hydrodynamic simulations.
