The pulsed power generator with an inductive energy storage system is investigated as a driver for a high power microwave source. The length and diameter of an exploding wire as an opening switch are optimized by numerical analysis taking into account the stored energy in an inductor at the beginning of wire vaporization and energy consumed for wire vaporization. Following the results of numerical analysis, a Marx circuit and a thin and long exploding wire are adopted for the developed inductive pulsed power generator. The output voltage up to 800 kV and the voltage risetime of 15 ns were obtained.
