Abstract : This work includes justification and the ideology chosen for 10 MJ facility for plasma flow discharge experiments with currents up to 25 MA. With the current rise time about 1 microsec the facility has a power up to 10(to the 13th power) W. The application of a plasma current switch provides 100 ns current front in the load and a voltage about 2-3 MV. The facility may be used in experiments on the implosion of shells, to accelerate plasma toroids to 5-6 MJ and to generate electron beams by the voltage up to 2 MV and current to 10 MA.
