A high-power nanosecond pulse generator based on a Lewis transformer and ultrafast IGBT-transistors is described. The generator ensures the formation of square pulses at a 50-Ω matched load with a repetition rate of up to 2 kHz. The pulse duration may be freely varied from 20 to 200 ns, and the pulse power may vary from 200 W to 2 MW.
