Multiple-gap spark gap switch
Review of Scientific Instruments
A triggered multiple-gap spark gap switch has been developed and tested under atmosphere. By means of an LCR trigger circuit, the multiple-gap switch can be used very reliably. For the same switching voltage ͑35.5 kV͒, with increasing the number of gaps from 2 to 6, the switching current rise time is reduced from 13.5 to 6 ns, and the energy efficiency is increased from 87% to 92%. An eight-gap switch was also tested, and the switching current rise time is much smaller than the usable rise timedoi:10.1063/1.2216792 fatcat:ogocuhklf5el3nyp3nzwv4oo74
