Abstract : In this work calculations are made of the efficiencies of acceleration of a liner from an inductive accumulator in the mode theta-pinch and Z-pinch. Consideration of the limitations with repsect to maximum power and voltage which the breakers are able to withstand leads to a limitation with respect to the speed of the liner. Estimations have been made of the necessary power at the moment of switching the current on the basis of considerations of the stability of the pinch effect of the liner. The level of energies necessary for the creation of a thermonuclear reactor on the basis of theta-pinch with a liner, at least for a demonstration reactor, lies somewhere near several dozen megajoules. It is clear that it is difficult to build condenser batteries for such energies. Therefore the most promising source for such experiments is inductive accumulators.
