The use of metal fiber brush armatures incorporated in sabots made of insulating low-density materials in distributed energy storage (DES) railguns requires the avoidance of permanent high-current… (More)
Compact pulse forming units for the 10 MJ PEGASUS facility have been designed and constructed. Each unit consists of a 50 kJ capacitor, a thyristor stack as main switch, a semiconducting diode stack… (More)
The presented pulse forming units (PFU) have an energy of 50 kJ and are driven by capacitors at a voltage of 10 kV. Both as main switch and as crowbar switch newly developed high voltage (U=12 kV)… (More)
This paper presents an optical diagnostic of the spatial and temporal evolution processes of a pseudo-spark discharge inside a pseudo-spark switch. The influence of the hollow cathode geometry and of… (More)
