A scheme for a high-current high-di /dt pulse generator is described, which incorporates an assembly of reverse switching dynistors (RSDs), a magnetic compression section, a trigger circuit based on a step-up saturable pulse transformer, and an additional RSD unit with a small working area. The generator, with an operating voltage of 10 kV, can switch a 108-kA pulse current with a full width at half maximum of about 65-mus duration, a di /dt of 8.66 kA/mus, and a jitter of less than 60 ns. The charge transferred and action are about 6 C and 0.53 MA2 s, respectively.
