Traditionally, the generation of very high power electromagnetic pulses, applied to the production of intense relativistic beams, dense hot plasmas and other transient phenomena has depended on the capacitive energy storage. Growing needs for increased energy capability of the generators has led to studies1 and proposals2 to demonstrate the feasibility of using magnetic storage systems with high voltage, power-multiplying stages as means of satisfying these needs. Most recent progress in the development of the elements for such high power systems is presented. Examples demonstrating the integration of inductive storage and high voltage technologies, to achieve high power output are considered.
