Abstract

This paper assesses the critical activation energy required to set off electroexplosive devices (EED) at constant joule heating and rates of joule heating. Safe operation and use of these devices are of great concern in and around pulsed electromagnetic interference. Sensitivity characterization of EEDs include firing sensitivity plots, thermodynamic modeling and electromagnetic interference. Activation energy evaluation of single and periodic rectangular pulses are included to represent adiabatic and non-adiabatic bridge wire heating of the EED. The scope of this paper is to provide a short overview of sensitivity, thermodynamic, and electromagnetic compatibility of EEDs. The results provide crucial information in evaluating energy induced by pulsed electromagnetic fields of compact pulse generators.
