Abstract
A NEED EXISTS FOR A TRANSPORTABLE REPETITIVELY PULSED POWER SUPPLY TO PROVIDE. 5MJ PULSES AT 50GW POWER LEVELS. OF SEVERAL POSSIBLE APPROACHES PULESD PLASMA MHD (PPMHD) IS A LEADING CANDIDATE FOR A COMPACT HIGH PERFORMANCE PRIME POWER SOURCE. DESIGNED TO OPERATE LIKE A RAPID-FIRE GUN, REPETITIVELY PULSED OPERATION AND SHORT HIGH POWER PULSES ARE MAJOR ATTRIBUTES. PPMHD IS BASED ON THE EFFICIENT CONVERSION OF THE ENERGY OF EXPLOSIVES TO AN ENERGETIC PLASMA AND THEN TO PULSED ELECTRICAL
