In this paper, a test pulser of the Brookhaven AGS Booster extraction fast kicker is described. The pulser is projected for both proton and heavy ion operation. A load of total inductance 2.15muH is used for the test pulser. The PFN voltage is required to be below 40kV for operation in air. Rise time of the pulse for proton extraction operation is about 120ns up to 97 of full current 1000A , and, for heavy ion extraction, 160ns up to 98 of full current 1615A . R-C compensation networks are used for pulse front edge sharpening. The flexibility of operation is obtained basically by switching an energy dumping resistor to match or mismatch the PFN impedance. Some comments on stray capacitance and stray inductance effects are included.
