Magnetohydrodynamic Simulation of a Coaxial High-Density Plasma Opening Switch

The plasma dynamics and the magnetic-field penetration in a coaxial plasma opening switch (POS) are studied self-consistently based on the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equation conjunction with the generalized Ohm's law. The energy transfers between the plasma and the magnetic field are considered during the penetration of the magnetic field… CONTINUE READING
