    Abstract

    A gas-discharge switching device based on semi-self-maintained space discharge controlled by an electron beam is described. The working gas is methane. In the circuit of a generator with partial discharge of a capacitor, the device switched currents of up to 7. 5 ka with a current-pulse duration of 110 mu sec for a recovery voltage of up to 50 kv. The characteristics of discharge in nitrogen are given for comparison.
