A high-current electron accelerator rated at an energy of up to 2 MeV with a beam current of up to 80 kA for a beam duration of similar 40 nsec is described. The pulse of accelerated voltage is created by means of a double shaping line with pulse charging from an Arkad'ev-Marx generator. Commutation of the current in the shaping line is accomplished by a multichannel gas spark gap. The electrons are emitted by cold cathode and accelerated in a one-gap accelerating space. Prime attention in the paper is devoted to the electrical portion of the accelerator.
