Abstract

The results are presented of experimental studies of explosively driven moving magnet generators. The study was performed with the use of high explosive and propellant charge. The projectiles used were NdFeB cylinders with D = 2,5 cm and H = 1.9 cm. Data are given for amplitude of high current pulses for different designs of the devices. The experiments performed have shown that the best option for generators using a moving magnetic projectile is to utilize the energy of the gases formed as a result of burning of the explosive rather than the energy of a flyer plate accelerated under the action of burning of the explosive. The explosive of preference is not C-4, but a military propellent charge which shows a high burning velocity and a high energy of explosive gases.
