Electromagnetic Simulation and Analysis of a Rotary-Arc Gap Switch


The electrode erosion is a serious problem for pulsed power switches working under high current. A rotary-arc gap switch (RAG) is the switch form that can reduce the electrode erosion through the fast rotation of the arc. A RAG with a coaxial cylindrical structure is designed in this paper, mainly composed of two electrodes and two coils. The finite-element… (More)
