An experiment on high-power ion beam generation in an inverse type self-insulated diode which used an actively produced source plasma was performed. The experiments were carried out on the accelerator PARUS of 0.2 TW power and 60-ns pulse duration on the matched load. The application of a plasma opening switch (flashboard) upstream from the diode resulted in a factor of 1.8 increase of the diode power in comparison with the matched load operation without plasma opening switch. A comparison of diode characteristics with an active source of anode plasma and the same diode construction with passive anode was made using the results of previous work.
