A transformer-free circuit for converting energy of condensed explosives to energy of electron beams and microwave radiation has been offered. The circuit is used to investigate the generation of relativistic electron beams and microwave radiation. Voltage pulses up to 600 kV and currents up to 16 KA have been obtained at the device, based on a triode with a virtual cathode. These voltage and current values correspond to the radiation power of a relativistic electron beam equal to 10GW. The radiation power of a beam introduced to the atmosphere was equal to 100 MW.
