Title: Reversing-counterpulse repetitive-pulse inductive storage circuit

Abstract

This patent describes a reversing-counterpulse repetitive-pulse inductive storage circuit comprising: a. a dc voltage source having a positive and a negative output; b. a load having a first and a second end, the first end thereof connected to the positive output of the dc voltage source; c. a storage coil having a first and a second end, the first end thereof connected to the negative output of the dc voltage source; d. main opening unidirectional triggerable means connected between the second end of the storage coil and the positive output of the dc voltage source for initially being closed to permit the charging of the storage coil to fixed current level and for opening when current flowing through the main opening unidirectional triggerable means is reduced to zero; 3. a counterpulse capacitor having a first and a second end, the first end thereof connected to the positive end of the dc voltage source, the counterpulse capacitor initially charged to a fixed voltage; and f. counterpulse unidirectional triggerable means connected between the second end of the storage coil and the second end of the counterpulse capacitor for initiating a transfer cycle.
