In some plasma applications, such as confinement and pinches, an ultrahigh magnetic field (several teslas) is required. Such magnetic flux densities can be produced by using flux compression generators (FCGs). This paper has proposed a joint thermodynamic and electromagnetic simulation method for a common type of FCGs (i.e., helical type) with respect to the magnetic coupled plasma studies. The images of displacements, pressure, and magnetic flux density distribution in generator and plasma chamber are presented as simulation results.
