Pulse sources of electromagnetic radiation based on a low-inductive extended z-discharge are studded experi-mentally and numerically. Z-discharge is initiated by a high-voltage pulse generator through a long transmission line. It is shown that using a sliding avalanche discharge traveling wave, one can provide electrical breakdown of long discharge gaps in a wide range of initial gas pressure and produce a plasma column at moderate voltages of the generator. Sources alloy to obtain the electromagnetic radiation of different kinds, from red visible range up to hard x-ray one. A new non-pinch mechanisms of radiation generation are discovered in the soft and hard x-ray ranges of spectra. These mechanisms offer a higher efficiency of conversion of elecnrical energy to the energy of a radiating medium.
