Abstract

Explosive Driven Ferroelectric Generators (EDFEGs) are compact power sources that have been considered for use as seed sources for magnaocnmnlative generators, as well as prime power sources [1,2]. Shock waves generated by high explosives are used to shock depolarize ferroelectric materials, which results in a voltage pulse being delivered to a toad. These generators have been experimentally investigated at Texas Tech University. Data from these experiments was used to benchmark a code developed at the Institute of Electromagnetic Research. In this paper, a description of the simulation and a comparison of the experimental and simulation results will be presented.
