The analysis of a solid-state Marx modulator (S2M2) topology, which have been developed for repetitive high-voltage (in kilovolts) applications, needing positive or negative rectangular pulses, is presented. The proposed topology benefits from the intensive use of semiconductors, allowing kilohertz operation with different load conditions. In addition to resistive loads, capacitive loads can be discharged to ground after each pulse and inductive loads can be clamped and the energy recovered to… CONTINUE READING
