    Abstract

    Experimental data on triggering of a pseudospark switch with a trigger unit based on auxiliary glow discharge are presented. Due to modifications in the trigger electric circuit, the switch is triggered starting from a voltage of 50 V at a current level of several mAmps. With a voltage of 150 - 200 V the delay time to triggering does not exceed 200 ns.
