SUBSTANCE: invention can be used for generating powerful bipolar and multiphase electric pulses. The method involves controlling series-connected single-type power cells containing electrical energy accumulators, and providing switching of positive and negative polarity of the connection of the energy accumulator to leads of the cell, and switching the electrical energy accumulator to leads of the cell, and having bypass diodes which provide flow of current through leads of the cell when electrical energy accumulators are disconnected from the leads of the cell. A signal from a current sensor is transmitted to the analogue input of a digital signal processor (DSP), from the digital outputs of which the power cells are controlled. Before completion of generation of a pulse, the digital signal processor periodically converts the signal from the current sensor, standardises it, calculates deviation from the current value stores in the digital signal processor of the pulse form and compares the deviation with four limiting values. Signals for controlling power cells are output from the outputs of the digital signal processor depending on the comparison results.

EFFECT: simplification of the method of generating pulses and reducing the number of circuit components.
