A description is given of the GIT16 facility, designed to improve the technology for forming high-power pulses using intermediate inductive storage and a circuit breaker in the form of a plasma opening switch and to investigate radiating loads of the Z-pinch type. The characteristics of the individual components of the facility are given and the main results characterizing the behavior of the microsecond plasma opening switch are given for currents of several megamperes.
