Abstract : The patent provides a pulse generating circuit which avoids undesirable re-excitation by providing a thyratron tube in one of the pulse forming networks so that the network is terminated in a short circuit at the time the impulse arrives thereto. Due to the action of the thyratron the polarity of the impulse is reversed in the shorted pulse forming network. Thus, the impulses in the two pulse forming networks will be of opposite polarity and will cancel one another when they are reflected back to the load circuit. Hence there can be no re-excitation of the load. It is the principal object of this invention to provide a pulse generating circuit wherein impulses transmitted thereto can be eliminated rather than reflected.
