In this paper, a pulsed-power generator that consists of a magnetic pulse compressor (MPC) and a Blumlein-type pulse forming network (BPFN) has been developed. The pulsed-power generator can be operated with high repetition rate, long lifetime, and high reliability for water treatments such as sterilization of microorganisms, decomposition of harmful materials, and ozone generation. An informative explanation about the simulation methodology using electromagnetic transient program was presented in order to give guidance for more efficient design of the pulsed-power generator with MPC and BPFN. The comparison study of the simulation result with the experimental result was carried out. As a result, it was found that the simulation results and the experimental results with the manufactured MPC and BPFN showed a reasonable agreement. In addition, a large volume of streamer discharge was successfully generated in water with the developed system
