Last years the electron accelerators I-3000 (3.2 MV, 20 kA, 15 ns), STRAUS(2.7 MV, 15 kA, 40 ns) and STRAUS-2 (3.3 MV, 50 kA, 40 ns) were created for pulsed bremstrahlung radiation generation and other applications. Relatively small dimensions and energy store (10-24 kJ), stable output characteristics make this devices convenient tools for systematic scientific investigations. A considerable increase in the accelerating voltage compared with the charge one (500-700 KV) is provided by the wave processes in the stepped transmission lines. The accelerating cavity of the LIU-10M accelerator (25 MV, 50 kA, 22 ns, 3 MeV/m) being created now are based on the similair schematic design. The STRAUS-2 accelerator is employed as an injector of LIU-10M device.
