The paper presents a design and the results of testing of the liquid resistive load for a repetitive high-voltage generator (200 kV, 0.5 ms). The load uses a sealed dielectric case, which is to be placed into a vacuum volume (5×10-4 Torr) for electrical strength ensuring. Repetitive testing of the generator with the load (10 pps) caused the electrolyte heating, the load resistance decreasing, and the changing of a generator mode. An expansion tank is used to compensate thermal expansion of the electrolyte, which makes it possible to absorb up to 1 MJ of energy in the load without seals breaking. A generator load curve can be obtained for one experiment with a help of the fluid load without any additional depressurization of the vacuum volume.
