Abstract:

Electric discharge within the magnetic flux compression generator FCG is one of the energy losses mechanisms in the system. In this paper, we experimentally demonstrate that the explosively expanding armature of the FCG plays a dominant role in the formation of plasma and initiation of electric discharge inside the FCG.
