The module of pulsed power electrohydraulic installation equipped with a technological tank having 2 working electrodes, storing energy up to 3 kJ at average power of 10 kW was constructed and tested. As power switching elements pseudospark switches of TDI-type were used. During the tests organic materials (flax straw) were processed. In the paper various factors, affecting PSS electrodes erosion, are considered. Valuable recommendations on providing the best service time of the switches are

The major object of the investigations is the development of technological system capable of providing a continuous production process with power consumption up to hundreds of kWh with large volumes (up to several tons) processed materials transportation. The process continuity substantially reduces cost of processing, simplifies design, and improves operational characteristics of the device and finally increases competitiveness of the production.
