Pulsed power (PP) can be considered as the science and technology of accumulating electrical energy over a relatively long period of time followed by the subsequent energy release in very short pulses, a single one or a controlled repetitive sequence, thus increasing the instantaneous peak power. What makes PP so unique is the concept that one can deliver extremely high peak powers during short times without the demand for highly powerful energetic power sources, used in custom direct (dc) or alternating (ac) voltage systems.
Pulsed power is a technique primarily developed for radars accelerators, and military applications, but with the potential for civil applications. In fact, there is a growing variety of environmental, biomedical, commercial, and industrial applications that use positive and/or negative high-voltage (HV) repetitive pulses for enhancing the properties of a product or a technique. These pulses may last anywhere from hundreds of picoseconds to tens of seconds, being released as a single shot or as a repetitive sequence up to several tens of thousands per second.
