Abstract:

The driver is concerned with providing high current pulses of positive andor negative polarity as desired. The device is charged by a D.C. voltage through a high impedance resonant network and discharges through a low impedance resonant network that includes a SCR that is turned on as desired by small current gating signals. A large current pulse, on the order of 25 amps during discharge, is inductively coupled to an output winding.
