Abstract:

This patent describes two or more hydrogen thyratrons sequentially triggered with precision timing. The first tube is triggered and provides a long, low power, slowly rising pulse to a load. Approximately midway in said pulse the second tube is made to conduct, providing a short, high power pulse to the load. The second tube is triggered at a predetermined time delay after the first tube in response to the positive swing of the LC resonant circuit output. Author
