Abstract:

This report considers the concepts, techniques, and limitations of means for controlling the flow of extremely high electric currents and the production of very rapid rates of change of current through a load. Impulse power systems are being incorporated in an increasing number of applications in military and research apparatus. As power and current risetime requirements are increased, more difficulties are encountered by the designer in producing an effective system.
