Abstract:

An equivalent circuit model is presented for a helical compressed magnetic field generator. The emphasis has been placed on producing a model which has a short computer run time. Magnetic energy losses due to non-linear field diffusion are taken into account, together with the effects of magnetically-induced conductor motion. Examples of the computer code results are given, together with a comparison with experimental data.
