This book is designed primarily to meet two objectives. It is intended to serve as a textbook for a one-semester university course for graduate or senior undergraduate students in the physical sciences, electrical engineering and other related disciplines, or it may be used as a reference book for those who are working in the field. For those intending to use the book for self-study, a general knowledge of electromagnetism, electrical circuitry and plasma and discharge physics is necessary. In order to meet these diverse objectives, the authors have attempted to make the book reasonably compact so that it can fit in a one-semester schedule while retaining its comprehensiveness in serving as a reference book. The contents are arranged so that theory and practice are proportionally balanced and each topic consists of essentially four basic elements: fundamental principles, mathematical expressions and formulas, examples and illustrations, numerical data and applications. In order to keep its compactness, lengthy theoretical discussions and detailed mathematical derivations are avoided whenever possible.

Pulsed electric field (PEF) food processing is a novel, non-thermal preservation method that has the potential to produce foods with excellent sensory and nutritional quality and shelf-life. This important book reviews the current status of the technology, from research into product safety and technology development to issues associated with its commercial implementation. Introductory chapters provide an overview of the process and its history. Part one then discusses the technology of PEF food preservation, with chapters on circuitry and pulse shapes, chamber design and technical and safety requirements. The second part of the book focuses on important product safety and quality issues such as probable mechanisms of microbial inactivation by PEF, adaptation potential of microorganisms treated by this method, toxicological aspects, the impact on food enzymes and shelf life. Chapters in the final part of the book cover topics relating to the commercialisation of the technology, including current and future applications, pitfalls, economic issues and scaling up, and public and regulatory acceptance. Food preservation by pulsed electric fields is a standard reference for all those involved in research into PEF food processing and its commercialisation. Reviews the current status of PEF technology with an overview of the process and its history Discusses the technology involved in PEF food preservation Focuses on important product safety and quality issues such as the impact on food enzymes and shelf life

Pulses with sub-nanoseconds / nanoseconds rise time are used in high power radar, sterilization, testing the effect on electronic systems, food irradiation, electromagnetic welding, forming, wastewater processing, defence, medical electronics, etc. There are various methods for obtaining the mentioned low rise time pulses. In this book, a Marx generator, peaking capacitor and peaking switch are used to obtain high amplitude low rise time pulse. A radiating antenna is then connected to the output of peaking stage. Such a system is known as the high-power electromagnetic (EM) impulse radiator. Two such EM radiators were mathematically analysed, simulated, designed, fabricated and the experiments have been conducted in this book.

While the basic operating principles of Helical Magnetic Flux Compression Generators are easy to understand, the details of their construction and performance limits have been described only in government reports, many of them classified. Conferences in the field of flux compression are also dominated by contributions from government (US and foreign) laboratories. And the government-sponsored research has usually been concerned with very large generators with explosive charges that require elaborate facilities and safety arrangements. This book emphasizes research into small generators (less than 500 grams of high explosives) and explains in detail the physical fundamentals, construction details, and parameter-variation effects related to them.
