    Abstract

    The state of research is considered for high-power pulse generators based on inductive energy stores and plasma interruptors. The main attention is given to plasma interruptors in which the low-resistance state lasts about 10-6 sec. Basic features are indicated and characteristic components in the theory with an indication of problems in using the devices and particular examples of existing equipment.
