The Essence of Pulsed Power -- Static and Dynamic Breakdown Strength of Dielectric Materials -- Energy Storage -- Switches -- Pulse-Forming Networks -- Pulse Transmission and Transformation -- Power and Voltage Adding -- Examples of Pulsed-Power Generators -- Diagnostics -- Applications of Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields -- Intense Radiation Sources -- Pulsed Discharges Through Solid and Liquid Dielectrics.
Pulsed-Power Systems describes the physical and technical foundations for the production and application of high-voltage pulses of very high-power and high-energy character. In the initial chapters, it addresses materials, components and the most common diagnostics. In the second part, three categories of applications with scientific and industrial relevance are detailed: production of strong pulsed electric and magnetic fields, intense radiation sources and pulsed electric (plasma) discharges.
