Abstract:

The Air Force Research Laboratory AFRL located on Kirtland Air Force Base performs explosive pulsed power experiments. The large separation distances between the related subsystems of these shots increase the likelihood of inadvertent multiple electrical ground connections. This paper describes some of the fiber-optic devices routinely used during our explosive power tests to mitigate the problems associated with ground loops.
