Abstract : The note presents a description of the development of a small, portable impulse generator for inducing a fast rising and short duration voltage pulse on an AC power system. The theory of operation is given along with complete circuit diagrams and construction details. Experimental test results obtained with commercially available AC power filters are included and various applications of the device are discussed. Means of damping power filter ringing are investigated and results presented along with recommendations for improved AC power filter design for applications where isolation from pulse type power voltage modulations is desirable.
