Novel transformer designs for high-power high-repetition-rate applications.


The construction technique and resulting electrical performance of high-voltage impulse transformers for ''pulser-sustained'' laser applications is presented. The compact structures exhibit excellent rise-time and power-handling capacity over a wide range of operating conditions. The distributed core geometry permits impulse power operation at several megawatts within the kilowatt average power regime. Reliable performance at a repetition rate of up to 40 kHz has been demonstrated. These simple condensed winding and torous core devices can be constructed in minutes and at negligible cost.
