Abstract : Describes a means for achieving square wave charging of pulse forming networks in line type pulsers which include parallel pulse forming networks with charging inductors connected between the PFNs. The cumulative value of the distributed inductance of the charging inductors is chosen so that when combined with the total capacitance of the PFNs, the charging network pulsewidth equals the interpulse period.
