Two partially coherent pulsed sources with sinc Schell-model (SSM) correlations are introduced. The analytic formulas for the average intensities of random pulse ensembles generated by such pulse sources propagating in dispersive medium are derived, and used to investigate their evolution. It is illustrated that the first type of pulsed source can generate tunable far-field flat profiles controlled by temporal correlation parameter and dispersion coefficient. The average intensity of the pulse ensembles generated by the second type of sources can split from a single distribution into two symmetric parts.
