The design of an explosive-to-electric transducer that uses the remnant magnetization in ferromagnetic cylinders is presented. 10-25 g charge of high explosives was used. The active element was NdFeB cylinders with diameter 2.5 cm and length 1.9 cm. The current generated in the low-resistance load of the generator yielded a peak 0.4 kA. Results of simulation of an explosive-to-electric transducer by Maxwell 3D code is presented. A detail analysis is given on the specific features of pulse generation in a system like this.
