Abstract:

A semi-empirical model of helical magnetocumulative generators MCGs has been developed. Two constants that are independent of the type of helical generator and the nature of the load and a single adjustable variable the characteristic time have been identified. To verify this model, calculated results were compared to experimental data for four helical MCGs - the Mark IX, FLEXY-I, EF-3, and Ranchito generators. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental data, as well as those generated by other codes.
