Abstract:

Multi-megawatt average power repetitively operated pulsers using multiple switches requires fault protection to prevent damage to the pulser or its associated load. The pulser itself has to be protected against unequal current sharing through the multiple switches and against load or internal arcing. Furthermore, when a fault does occur, the fault protection must signal the system power supply to cease operation.
