The preliminary experiments were performed on wire array implosion driven by a radial plasma flow switch on the GIT-12 generator operating in a microsecond mode. Imploding gas puff z-pinch plasma was used to provide fast switching of the current to an aluminum wire array. The experimental results are presented in the paper.
