Investigation of Switch Designs for the Dynamic Load Current Multiplier Scheme on the SPHYNX Microsecond Linear Transformer Driver


SPHINX is a microsecond linear transformer driver LTD, used essentially for implosion of Z-pinch loads in direct drive mode. It can deliver a 6-MA current pulse within 800 ns into a Z-pinch load. The dynamic load current multiplier concept enables the current pulse to be modified by increasing its amplitude while reducing its rise time before being… (More)
