Equations and a calculation procedure for modeling the operation of an electronic, adjustable-waveform and other types of high voltage spark sources are presented. The equations return time-dependent capacitor voltage and charging current and the calculation procedure returns complete break patterns. Comparisons between laboratory and computed results indicate the calculations predict experiment with accuracy in the 1 to 5% relative error range. This is sufficient to make the calculation procedure useful for characterization of research or production spark sources.
