Might be usefull to double-pulse a fusor. The first pulse, low voltage/high current, is designed to pre-ionize and blast gas or evacuate the fusor core area.

The second pulse, high voltage/current, gets the multiple well & resonant modes excited.

The advantage would be better ballistic or cold plasma, rather than thermal-hot plasma. Comments?
