Abstract: The results of experimental studies of a compact high-voltage pulse generator are presented. The generator is based on two artificial double forming lines in a collapsed circuit, which are switched by gas spark gaps; it also contains a peaking gas spark gap, transmission lines filled with a liquid dielectric, and a load equivalent. The characteristics of this generator were studied in the charging-voltage range of up to 100 kV. When the voltage pulse duration from the forming line was 100 ns, current pulses with an amplitude of 18 kA and a rise time of ~18 ns were obtained across an ohmic load.
