The problems encountered when discharging an inductive storage device into a load are discussed in detail. Experiments with a switch using a liquid metal to solid metal contact resulted in electrode erosion which could not be prevented. This led to the exclusive use of liquid electrodes which are self healing. A variety of switch configurations were devised and tested including two types of vertical flow interrupters. Data from these tests which were conducted with both mercury and liquid sodium as the switching medium is presented. Author
