Abstract:

The Z formerly PBFA Z vacuum insulator system consists of four stacks of Rexolite rings about 11-fl. in diameter, immersed in water, that insulate four biconic vacuum power-flow regions. The power flows are combined by a post-hole convolute just outside the imploding plasma load. Each ring stack is driven by nine similar water transmission lines connected around its perimeter. The different inductances between each stack of insulators and the load lead to a different voltage magnitude and waveform across each stack therefore two stacks consist of five 2.25-inch-high insulators, and two stacks consist of six such insulators.
