An experimental model of an explosion-electrodynamic pinch- accelerator is considered, which uses the energy of explosion simultaneously for current commutation and the preliminary acceleration of the body launched. The mode of electric energy input into the accelerator, in the course of plasma piston formation, is studied. The relationships of the body velocity to the values of the electric energy applied and the maximum pinch voltage are obtained. The efficiency of converting electric energy into kinetic one for 3.5 and 10 g launched bodies is evaluated.
