The results of the parametric analysis of current extinction in counterpulse systems without saturable reactor are presented in this paper. The current derivative di/dt has been assumed as a free parameter to investigate its effect on the design of the counterpulse capacitor bank and tuning inductor. General design criteria of the counterpulse systems are presented and compared with the solutions employing saturable reactors.
