A prototype of a pulsed X-ray machine with an operating voltage of 600–800 kV based on a combined spiral generator has been manufactured and tested. Compared to the classical spiral generator, the total length of the spiral winding is increased by adding one-line winding coils in order to match the wave travel time along the spiral generator line to the oscillation time in the generator according to the Tesla model. As a result, a high efficiency was obtained in this modification of the transformer. A theoretical model describing the operation of the combined generator is proposed.
