Abstract

This paper presents the electrical and mechanical hardware considerations of a compact, 160 J modular pulse forming network (PFN) Marx generator used to drive a high-power microwave (HPM) source that is a time variant load at a PRF of 100 Hz. The modular Marx generator is designed to produce an open-circuit output voltage of 600 kV from a 50 kV source using twelve stages. Each stage of the Marx was constructed from a PFN fashioned from five, 2.1 nF, high voltage capacitors in parallel. Each Marx module was machined out of acetyl copolymer or Delrin
