It is shown that in a hybrid coaxial magnetoplasma accelerator with a channel length of 350 mm and a diameter of 23 mm, the acceleration velocity and the energy conversion efficiency increase as the length of the channel plasma structure formation filled with a gas generating material decreases from 17 to 9 mm. It is found that as the gas generating material, it is advisable to use paraffin which has a less significant deionizing effect on a high-current arc discharge and thus causes a less significant decrease in discharge current intensity and an increase in conductive and inductive electrodynamic forces.
