Our recent effort to test a 50 kV, 1 kA, 50 ns pulse width, 10 ns pulse rise time FID pulse generator with 250 ft transmission cable, resistive load, and existing RHIC injection kicker magnet has produced unparalleled result. This is the very first attempt to drive a high strength fast kicker magnet with a nanosecond high pulsed power (50 MVA) generator for large accelerator and colliders. The technology is impressive. We report here the result and future plan of RHIC Injection kicker upgrade.
