Marx Generator, High Voltage Pulses, Transformer, Switches, Spark Gaps, Low repetition rates, High pulse rate, Standard impulse waveforms, Lightning strikes.
Marx generators can generate high-voltage pulses using several, similar stages that run at a
fraction of the total output voltage without the need for a step-up transformer that limits pulse rise times and decreases
device performance. Every stage in Marx involves a network forming condenser or pulse, and a high voltage switch. Such switches are usually spark gaps resulting in low
repetition rates and Marx generators Lives tight. Developing economical, compact , high voltage, high di / dt and fast turn-on solid state switches makes it easy to build cost effective, longlived, high voltage Marx generators capable of high pulse repeat rates.
Standard impulse waveforms have similar characteristics to those of lightning strikes and can be used to test the strength of electrical equipment. Marx generator is the most popular and widely used method for producing high voltage pulses.
