Pulsed power systems accumulate and store large amounts of energy for a certain period of time to be released instantaneously later.

The development of these systems is deeply intertwined with the nuclear age. In the mid-20th century, pulsed power systems were also used to create other military weapons, such as radar systems and rail guns.
As the 20th century progressed, pulsed power systems were key to the creation of X-ray machines, then MRI …
