Title: Pulse charging system

Abstract

A system, method, and apparatus for pulsed charging applications comprises a bulk capacitor operably connected to a power source, an inductor connected to the bulk capacitor with a charge switch, a pulse capacitor connected to the inductor, a freewheeling diode connecting a point between the charge switch and the inductor to a point after the pulse capacitor, a second diode connecting the inductor to the pulse capacitor, and a pulse switch connecting the pulse capacitor to a load.
