In this paper, a flexible pulsed power generator (FPPG) based on the solid-state Marx Structure is designed to create a wide range of pulses for cancer treatment. Pulse with different characteristics is needed to treat different samples depending on their type, dimensions, and impedance. Also, with the change in pulse widths, the pulse characteristics suitable for treatment change widely. With conventional semiconductor base Marx generators, due to the limitations in their rise time, current level, and impedance characteristics, it is not possible to generate a wide range of pulse characteristics, especially for low impedance loads. The FPPG by changing the connection mode of two Marx generators, can decrease the generator impedance for low impedance loads, increase the output current and voltage amplitude and repetition rate, and generate pulse width from nanosecond to several hundred microseconds. The simulation of FPPG in OrCAD-PSpice software shows its proper functioning.
