Abstract:

Recent progress in the development of key elements of high power inductive storage systems makes it possible to generate high power pulses using energy storage systems other than explosive generators that include single-pulse inductive systems, hybrids inductorpulse line and inductive devices for steepening of the capacitor output as well as inductive systems for generation of high power pulse trains. Prospects for further development of opening switches and storage systems suggest potential near-term payoff. Improvements based on such developments can be expected to impact system efficiency, compactness and operational convenience.
