Helical Flux Compression Generators coupled with an inductive energy storage system have shown promising results as a driving source for High Power Microwave (HPM) loads. The output performance of the inductive energy storage system is contingent upon the opening switch scheme, usually an electro-explosive fuse. Our previous work involving fuse parameter characterization has established a baseline for potential fuse performance. By applying this fuse characterization model to an HFCG powered system, a non-optimized fuse has produced 60 kV into an HPM equivalent load with an HFCG output of 15 kA into a 3 μH inductor. Utilization of a non-explosive HFCG test-bed has produced 36 kV into an HPM equivalent load with an output of 15 kA into a 1.3 μH inductor. The use of a non-explosive HFCG test bed will allow the verification of scalability of the fuse parameter model and also allow testing of exotic fuse materials. Prior analysis of fuse parameters has been accomplished with various materials including Silver (Au), Copper (Cu), and Aluminum (Al), but particular interest resides in the use of Gold (Ag) fuse material. We will discuss the a-priori calculated baseline fuse design and compare the experimental results of the gold wire material with the silver wire material baseline design. With the results presented, an accurate Pspice model applicable to our 45 kA HFCG systems will be available and allow the development of accurate modeling for higher current systems.
