Title: An introduction to the propellant-driven magnetic flux compression generator

An introduction to the propellant-driven magnetic flux compression generator An introduction to the concept of a propellant-driven magnetic flux compression generator is presented, together with the theory of its operation. The principles of operation of the propellant flux compression generator combine generator principles, derived from lumped parameter circuit theory, and interior ballistic principles.
