Characterization of Three-Electrode Spark Gap Used in Mogul-D

Abstract

Summary form only given. This study focuses on the characterization of a spark gap closing switch used by AWE in their Mogul-D and other pulsed power facilities at Aldermaston. The switch is a dc-charged, three-electrode spark gap. The effect of the polarity and magnitude of the charging voltage is investigated. Aspects of switching performance have also… (More)
