The characteristics are described of gas-filled three-electrode spark gaps at a voltage of 10-100 kV that are controlled by changing the potential of an additional electrode. An operating region of the spark gaps of up to 50% is obtained for a trigger delay time t//d greater than equivalent to 15 nsec and a spread of up to 1. 5 nsec. The results are presented of a study of the dependence of t//d on the gas pressure, the field strength and the gap magnitude. A model is described of a generator of voltage pulses of up to 500 kV and a rise time of 10 nsec.
