The characteristics of sources of plasma flows formed by high-current discharges in polyethylene, teflon, and ceramic capillaries are presented that allow high-velocity flows of high-density plasma to be obtained. The influence of the initial voltage on the capillary, rate of current growth, and current amplitude on the parameters of the formed plasma bunches and on the service life of the capillaries made of the examined dielectrics is shown. Experimental data on propagation of bunches in crossed electric and magnetic fields of a magnetically insulated transmission line are presented.
