    Abstract

    A circuit is proposed for increasing the power and voltage across the load in a generator based on a line pulse transformer. The power is amplified by series connection of plasma opening switches between the transformer sections. A numerical analysis has been performed for the generator circuit. The results of experiments on determination of the characteristics required for realization of the proposed opening switch circuit are reported.
