Compact high voltage subnanosecond monocycle former (MF) was tested. The device was designed on base of energy compression device and operated in a travelling wave mode. MF consists of high impedance and forming lines, which discharged for the load in parallel. As a result, the monocycle with pulse duration ∼1 ns and typical peak to peak amplitude ∼250 kV was formed without additional peaking of the nanosecond pulse rise time. Some pulses reached the maximum amplitude ∼270 kV. The parallel discharge circuit, and a spiral shape of forming line allowed keeping small dimensions of MF, and save enough electrical strength to operate with pulse repetition rate up to 100 pps.
