A new family of Marx generators based on commutation circuits
Zabihi, Sasan, Zare, Firuz, Ledwich, Gerard, Akiyama, Hidenori , & Ghosh, Arindam (2011) A new family of Marx generators based on commutation circuits. In Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE), 2010 IEEE, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Atlanta, GA, pp. 3841-3846.
This paper presents a novel topology for the generation of high voltage pulses that uses both slow and fast solid-state power switches. This topology includes diode-capacitor units in parallel with commutation circuits connected to a positive buck-boost converter. This enables the generation of a range of high output voltages with a given number of capacitors. The advantages of this topology are the use of slow switches and a reduced number of diodes in comparison with conventional Marx generator. Simulations performed for single and repetitive pulse generation and experimental tests of a prototype hardware verify the proposed topology.
