Plasma erosion opening switch operation in the 50 ns1µs conduction time range
1990 Edition, July 1, 1990 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Results of PEOS experiments are examined where the conduction time varies from 50 ns to 1 μs. Conduction current scaling is proportional to plasma density in the 50 ns conduction time range, based on...

Plasma Erosion Opening Switch Operation at Long Conduction Times
1987 Edition, Volume 15, October 1, 1987 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

The plasma erosion opening switch (PEOS) can conduct large (~megamperes) currents for several tens of nanoseconds before opening in < 10 ns, generating megavolt-level voltages in the process. In the present...

Plasma Erosion Opening Switch in the Double-Pulse Operation Mode of a High-Current Electron Accelerator
1987 Edition, Volume 15, December 1, 1987 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

This paper reports the results of investigations of the operation of a fast current opening switch, with a 1013-1016 plasma density produced either by dielectric surface flashover or by explosive emission of graphite. A series of two pulses was applied to...

Investigation of plasma opening switch conduction and opening mechanisms
1991 Edition, Volume 19, October 1, 1991 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Plasma opening switch techniques have been developed for pulsed power applications to exploit the advantages of electrical energy storage in a vacuum inductor compared to conventional, capacitive-based energy storage. Experiments are described that demonstrate...

Numerical and theoretical developments in plasma erosion opening switch research
1989 Edition, January 1, 1989 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Summary form only. The plasma erosion opening switch (PEOS) can conduct megaampere levels of current for 50 ns to 1 mu s before opening into a load. The opening times can be a factor of ten times smaller than the...

Operation and empirical modeling of the plasma opening switch
1990 Edition, January 1, 1990 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Summary form only given, as follows. Plasma opening switch (POS) experiments have been conducted on the DNA BLACKJACK 5 and ACE accelerators at Maxwell Laboratories. On BLACKJACK 5 one of the switch geometries increased the value of dI/dt delivered...

High density plasma opening switch experiments on Hawk
1995 Edition, Volume 1, January 1, 1995 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Previously, plasma opening switch (POS) experiments on the Hawk pulsed power generator have shown fast opening (<100 ns) into electron-beam diode loads, generating 1-2 MV after 0.5-1 /spl mu/s conduction time. The plasma density...

Operation and empirical modeling of the plasma opening switch
1991 Edition, Volume 19, April 1, 1991 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

Experiments on the performance of plasma opening switches (POS) were conducted on two pulsed power generators, the BLACK-JACK 5 and ACE 1 accelerators. The results demonstrate the capability of the POS as a final switching stage...

Plasma erosion opening switch using laser-produced plasma
1992 Edition, Volume 20, August 1, 1992 - IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc.

In order to construct a practical inductive energy storage pulsed power generator, an opening switch which can repeatedly conduct a large current and then rapidly interrupt this current is necessary. Though the plasma erosion opening switch...
