A design of high power pulse compression by (axial) magnetic flux compression is presented. Optimal model parameters are presented for liner plasma using the thin-shell model code and finite element analyses for stator coils design. Typical model simulation results indicated that a 1.5 μs rise-time pulse with 7.5 MA peak value could be compressed to 20 MA peak value fast rise pulse (∼40 ns rise-time) in the secondary circuit with a 0.5 Ω external load. The limitations resulting from Joule heating and extra high magnetic field diffusion on stator coils are discussed.
