IEE Symposium Pulsed Power 2001
A high voltage, high di/dt, modular solid state switch intended to replace thyratrons in high power modular applications is under development. This paper describes results of testing a switch module with a 10kV, 6kA, 30 kA/µs, 3µs PFN, under normal and load fault conditions. Initial results of multiple module tests with a 30kV PFN are also be presented. The switch module uses 3, 5kV, 13mm diameter thyristors connected in series. These thyristors were developed specifically for pulsed powerdoi:10.1049/ic:20010122 fatcat:m272hjrnabhi5ntqv3rjjlvd7u
