    Abstract

    One of the widely used systems for external triggering of the cold cathode thyratron (pseudospark switch) is based on a trigger unit with an auxiliary glow discharge. In most cases, the trigger unit is mounted at the grounded cathode. However, in some cases a specific requirement for triggering is demanded, namely, a trigger unit has to be located at potential cathode electrode. Direct application of the previous experience as applied to these cases leads to a rather intricate design for both mechanical parts of the trigger unit and electric circuit. This paper describes a simple trigger system for such conditions. Simultaneously with the function of external triggering, the system provides the so-called blocking effect, i.e. increasing a pulsed breakdown voltage and preventing the accident breakdowns in the regime of high pulse repetition rate.
