    Abstract

    The necessity of considering the motion of electrons and ions in the plasma of a microsecond switch in the conduction and cutoff stages (Hall MHD model) is substantiated experimentally. We give the Hall MHD model relations that describe the main parameters of the plasma opening switch as an element of the electrical circuit of a pulsed current generator. Comparison of the deductions of the theory with the experimental results obtained in pulsed current generator (PCG) installations indicates that the theory and experiment at least are not in contradiction with each other. An improvement of the POS design from the standpoint of the Hall MHD model is proposed.
