The switching element is usually located in the area of maximum electric field strength and the desire to put it in the area of lower field strength, but keeping the same efficiency and steadiness, of operation is quite understood. Presumably a cascade switch might provide the required way of operation. Two designs of cascade switches were examined. The first one was formed by waveguide tees connected in a way when a direct input arm of a next tee is connected to a side arm of a preceding tee. The second was a set of tees connected in series through their direct arms. It was shown that the considerable decrease of the switched power value and the increase of the output power and stability of the output pulse parameters can be provided.
