Investigating Long-Distance Exploding-Wire Restrike

Abstract

An experimental setup was built using commonly available high-voltage laboratory equipment to investigate the creation of exploding-wire restrikes up to 9 m long. Sets of voltage traces are presented with varying applied average electric fields. Restrikes (formation of plasma paths) have been found to occur in a region of average electric field between 5.6… (More)
