A pulsed high magnetic field laboratory has been funded to be established at the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Wuhan, China by the National Development and Reform Committee. The facility is planned to be open for external users in 2011 with the implementation of various experimental techniques in pulsed magnetic fields up to 80 T. Pulse durations are in the range from 15 to 1000 ms with the magnet bore sizes from 12 to 34 mm. The pulsed power supplies are a 12 MJ, 25 kV capacitor bank and a 100 MVA/100 MJ flywheel pulse generator. The design and analysis of the power supplies and the magnets of short and long pulse durations and the multi-stage pulsed magnets with controllable waveforms are presented in this paper.
