Part of a continuing study of Soviet R and D of high-current, high-energy charged-particle beams and their scientific and technological applications, this report discusses pulsed-power devices and elements, the basic means of energy delivery to all charged-particle beam systems. Specifically, it treats pulsed-power generation, storage, and switching. Soviet technical literature since 1960 was examined for data detailing both the organization and planning of Soviet pulsed-power R and D and the theory, testing, and operation of pulsed-power equipment. The author concludes that the USSR is engaged in a major effort to develop pulsed-power systems for controlled thermonuclear reactions as a national energy source and military applications. Appendixes list pulsed-power facilities and published staff authors by research area and alphabetical order.
