Abstract

The design of the load current multiplier with a 1.75-current enlargement factor, when the pulse amplitude of the current through a 3-MA load of the M↖Γ terawatt pulse generator (multifunction pulse generator), is described, and its operation is demonstrated. The design of the multiplier is sufficiently simple, and it is easily demounted, allowing one to use the M↖Γ generator in other operation modes with differentimpedance loads. It is shown that it is expedient to use the multiplier for operation with static low-inductance loads, e.g., in studies of the skin electric explosion or nonlinear diffusion of megagauss magnetic fields. In this case, the multiplier application is intended to ensure a one-and-one-half increase in the current through the load as compared to the standard operation mode of the M↖Γ generator.
