A model of a high-power current pulse generator based on an explosive magneto-cumulative generator with electrically exploded copper-conductor breakers capable of generating a powerful electromagnetic pulse impact in a limited space of 16 m3 is described. An experimental setup has been constructed that contains tools for diagnostics of the parameters of the electromagnetic pulse impact. The results of experimental studies in the form of measured pulse values of the current in and voltage across the load are presented. An electric field intensity of ~0.5 MW/m has been achieved. The rate of the increase in the magnetic field density reached 0.12 T/μs.
