A discussion of explosive pulsed power systems and their applications, this book consists of 7 chapters. The first five describe the basic physics of these sources and their ancillary equipment, based on a manual for training engineers in Russia. Chapter 6 is a description of codes and methodologies used at Loughborough University in the UK to build flux compressors, while Chapter 7 covers two specific applications: high power lasers and high power microwave sources. The book introduces all types of explosive power sources and their ancillary equipment, the procedures required to build them, and specific applications.... are confined in such a way that other materials and components can be protected from any damage that the explosion might produce. ... 1.8 Introduction to MCGs The magnetocumulative generator (MCG) is a device in which chemical energy released by a detonating ...
