Abstract

An analysis of modern notions of breakdown in condensed media opens up new possibilities for a decrease in the microsecond voltages for solid dielectric breakdown. Investigations of solid dielectric and rock breakdowns on the trailing edge of a voltage pulse in a sharply nonuniform field demonstrate that the pulse amplitude and the slope of the working voltage pulse edge can be decreased significantly.
