Abstract

A methodology for electromagnetic simulation of initially charged structure with a discharge source (ICSWDS) has been investigated. The ICSWDS can be applied to a lot of areas such as high power electromagnetic (HPEM) radiators. As a method of electromagnetically simulating the ICSWDS, converting initially charged structures into equivalent transient structures and modeling discharge sources by using step voltage sources have been found. A Blumlein pulse forming line (PFL) has been simulated, manufactured and tested to validate this approach. A measured waveform from the test has a good agreement with a simulated waveform.
