The reusable source of a pulsed magnetic field—a ballistic magnetocumulative generator (BMG)—is considered. Electrical engineering analysis of the efficiency of operation of the generator on an active-inductive load is performed. A method for calculating the two-dimensional distribution of the field in the busbars of the generator is developed. Experimental results are obtained for the operation of aBMG model on some types of load.
