Abstract

A rugged, laser-free design of electrically controlled MV-class, ns-sub-ns switch is proposed to develop in Phase I. The novel switch design is based on combination of Drift Step Recovery Diode, and inverse-switchable dynistor used as a closing circuit and correspondingly matched charging/discharging resonant pulsed circuitry. The approach is capable of generating of fraction of MV pulses at up to kHz rep rates and GW level of peak power.
