How do I size my external power supply if I want a fast rise time?

The energy available in your external power supply doesn't directly affect the rise time of the pulse. The pulser has an internal capacitor bank and is designed with high-frequency switching circuitry that can provide energy to the output much faster than the external supply.

On the other hand, the external power supply must recharge the pulser's internal capacitor bank between pulses and thus must be sized large enough to keep up with the desired pulse repetition rate.
