The electrical characteristics of the charge (or capacitor) transfer circuits, which are used for the excitation of pulsed gas lasers, are investigated. The formalism that is followed is based on the solution of the differential equations that are obeyed by the currents that flow in the two loops of the circuit. The theoretical predictions are confirmed by experimental data taken with a nitrogen laser. The method can be applied to any type of gas laser using a charge transfer circuit, so that the shape of the voltage and current waveforms can be predicted from the circuit parameters and vice versa. Two other important parameters, the resistance and inductance of the discharge plasma, can also be found. (EN)
