Abstract

The pulsed power conditioning system (PPCS) is one of the key enabling technologies for using the energy output of a magnetic flux compression generator (MFCG). This paper shows the results of comprehensive experimental studies of an inductive energy storage system using an exploding wire fuse. The effects of metal oxide Varistors (MOVs) for use as pulse-shaping devices are also presented. The experimental results are complemented by a comprehensive evaluation and interpretation of the results using the tools available in the professional version of MathCAD.
