Abstract

The design of explosive driven ferroelectric generators is presented and experimental data are discussed. The active elements are lead zirconium titanate (PZT) disks with diameter D = 25 mm and thicknesses H = 2.5 nun and H = 6 mm and PZT cylinders with D = 21 mm and H = 25 mm. The high explosive charge was varied from 4.2 g to 30 g. Two different ways to initiate shock waves in the active elements were used: explosively driven flyer plates and direct action of high explosives. The data presented is for the maximum power into a resistive load.
