A thyristor generator is described that produces in the winding of the electromagnet of a betatron unipolar current pulses of sinusoidal and quasisinusoidal shape with deforcing of the field at the beginning of an acceleration cycle and with a plateau on the pulse top at the end of a cycle. The current amplitude is controlled by a pulse-phase method. The generator is used in apparatus with a pulse duration of 1-10 msec, a maximum electromagnet field energy 45-450 J, a winding voltage of 960-1500 v, and a winding current of 100-500 A for a repetition frequency of 50-200 Hz.
