High-voltage pulse generators for microwave radiation sources

A set of high-voltage pulse generators is described. They are used for generation of gigawatt microwave radiation pulses in vircator or relativistic BWO with ~50 Ohm diode impedance. The first two generators are based on inductive energy storage and an exploding wires switch. The output voltage and the power of the first generator are ~600 kV and 10 GW… CONTINUE READING
