As a part of the New World Vistas Program, a series of ultra-compact explosive-driven ferroelectric generators (EDFEGs) has been designed, constructed, and tested by Texas Tech University providing well-documented EDFEG output parameters that were used to benchmark a theoretical model of the EDFEG developed at the Institute of Electromagnetic Research. A description of the model for the EDFEG is presented along with a brief description of the EDFEG, the experimental setup, and test procedures that were used. A comparison of the experimental and calculated results shows them to be in good agreement.
