Pulsed power supply equipment relates to the basic technological systems. Its goal is to fulfill the required current change scenarios in the magnetic coils. These scenarios realization accuracy has direct impact on the possibility to obtain plasma breakdown and the required outcome parameters. Considering the uniqueness of each facility under construction in the world, as well as installed capacity of applied electrotechnical equipment in the setting of their power supply sources assembly - it is possible to state confidently that the construction of similar power complexes and their control systems, optimization of their electrotechnical parameters and further accident-free operation is one of the vital tasks in mastering controlled thermonuclear fusion technologies. This paper describes tokamak KTM pulse power supply system, digital control system for its forceful converting equipment, electrotechnical solutions adopted under development of tokamak KTM pulse power supply system and findings discovered at the testing of some equipment and its components. The testing performed demonstrated high efficiency of the adopted electrotechnical solutions and possibility of their application in implementation of pulse power supply systems for small and medium sized tokamaks.
