For improving launching velocity and efficiency of intercepting plate in active electromagnetic armor protective system, theoretically analyzing the main parameters that determine the change of electromagnetic force. Investigating the system dynamic changes in different pulsed power equipment driving manners. Combining different driving manners, the dynamic working process of the intercepting plate launcher are simulated, that adopting finite element analytic software Ansoft’s transient solution to simulate the dynamic process of intercepting plate. The maximum velocities obtained in the bipolar driving manner and in the single-polar driving manner are 12.61 m/s and 14.00 m/s respectively. Analysis shows that the effect of the electromagnetic force is not only related with the driving manners but also with the materials.
