Abstract

A repetitive four spark gap switches and transmission line based pulsed power generator has been developed to study the multiple switching technology. It includes 16 1.5m-long coaxial cables, four cables in parallel per switch. By means of transmission lines, the four switches can be synchronized in nanoseconds. It can produce a pulse at a high voltage or a large current. Combined with the LCR (Inductor-Capacitor-Resistor) trigger method, the setup can be operated repetitively and very stably. The detailed experimental results will be discussed in this paper.
