Abstract:

Subnanosecond risetime, kilohertz oil switches have been developed and tested at Pulse Sciences, Inc. The development was divided into two phases. During the first phase, a two-three pulse breakdown test at 130 kV was used to measure the recovery characteristics of a large area oil switch at up to 200 pps. Different geometries were explored along with oil flow rates required. The oil flow experiments and the effect of electrodeflow geometry are reported.
