What sort of help do you need? With a high enough continuous voltage you can arc from a cloud to the ground (lightning).

I have a 10,000 vdc power supply that gives a good 1 inch continuous arc. and as Kiteman says, the tasers do pulse (I haven't operated mine for so long I forgot, but it definitely makes an audible pulse)

Tasers don't have a continuous arc, it's a lot of sparks one after the other. What do you want the arc to do?
