A novel approach to energy compression is described in this paper. The main principle for this approach is based on the fact that the time of appearance of a voltage pulse traveling on a channel (transmission line in this case), is directly proportional to the electrical length of the channel. Thus, if power pulses are fed into a group of transmission lines, sequentially, they may reach the end points simultaneously, if certain measures are taken. If the system is composed of m transmission lines, the difference in the electrical length from line to line should be T/m, where T denotes the period of the cycle. The output peak power will be m times higher than the input peak power, due to either a rise in voltage, in current, or a combination of both. The main features of that topology are: (a) The switching elements, the system consists of, need to withstand a much lower peak power than the output, compressed power, (b) The system can operate either at extremely high frequencies or with very short rise and decay times of rectangular pulses.
