Abstract:

A pulse generation system using an inductive energy storage technique is described. A high magnitude current flowing in a storage inductor is suddenly halted by means of a repetitive series interrupter device and an accompanying magnetic field coupled control circuit. The resulting high voltage generated causes breakdown across a spark gap and transmission of a high energy pulse to a load. Author
