The system of nonlinear differential equations that model a simple exploding conductor circuit in its initial stages up to the melting point of the conductor is analyzed. Using the method of variation of parameters, approximate analytical solutions are derived that reflect the role of the circuit parameters and initial conditions in shaping the dynamics. A comparison with solutions obtained by numerical integration shows that the approximate solutions are quite accurate over the entire domain of validity of the mathematical model
