The results of a study of the energy transfer in the TEMP-4M pulsed ion beam accelerator are presented. The energy transfer efficiency in the Blumlein and a self-magnetically insulated ion diode was analyzed. Optimization of the design of the accelerator allows for 85% of energy transferred from Blumlein to the diode (including after-pulses), which indicates that the energy loss in Blumlein and spark gaps is insignificant and not exceeds 10%-12%. Most losses occur in the diode. The efficiency of energy supplied to the diode to the energy of accelerated ions is 8%-9% for a planar strip self-magnetic MID, 12%-15% for focusing diode and 20% for a spiral self-magnetic MID.
