Abstract:

This report describes work performed to develop a set of high voltage nanosecond pulse generators. The objective of the development is a set of pulse generators of small volume, low weight, and high efficiency. Testing of the power supply and modualtor for Task A Pulse Generator, operating either single pulse of 15 Hz at a pulsewidth of 125 ns, pulse voltage of 30kV, and pulse current of 1200 amps, has been proceeding. The power supply and modulator were integrated and operated at an intermediate level of 10 kV. The modulator was tested at 30 kV. Preliminary tests on a SCR-magnetic modulator for Task B Pulse Generator, providing a 5 kV, 4 A, 100 ns pulse to the load, were conducted. In addition, a solid state pulse generator providing a 16 kV, 0.5 amp, 6 microsec pulse to a laser load was designed, built and tested.
