Electrical performance of a three-stage flux compression generator system

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In previous papers at prior Megagauss Conferences, we have described the design and performance of two stage FCG pulsed power packages. This paper extends the effort to a three stage pulsed power package that increases the power amplification and versatility of the self contained packages. The first tow stages are helical FCGs. The second stage is energized by using a magnetic coil connected to the first FCG. The coupling technique is similar in concept to the cascaded devices previously demonstrated by A.I. Pavlovski, but uses a more direct coupling geometry. The third generator is a fast operating plate generator that ... continued below

The second stage is energized by using a magnetic coil connected to the first FCG. The coupling technique is similar in concept to the cascaded devices previously demonstrated by A.I. Pavlovski, but uses a more direct coupling geometry. The third generator is a fast operating plate generator that produces a one microsecond long pulse. The plate generator output is coupled to the high impedance load to provide better impedance matching. The design and performance of a three stage FCG pulsed power package into a high impedance load is described.
