That's a pretty bold claim considering that Mark Barton ran his
MOSFET coil in both CW and interrupted mode years ago. I once thought
that a Marx bank I developed was an innovation since I used chokes
instead of resistors as the charging elements. Then a kind person in
the States gave me a copy of Sargent and Dollinger's "High Power
Electronics" and I saw "my" wonderfully innovative scheme described
in graphic detail and written up long before I hit upon the idea.
That's not to belittle your achievement in any way but just to make
known that an exhaustive search for prior art is not a bad thing
before making claims of originality.
