    Abstract

    A new gas switch for Marx generators is presented that is designed for a ±100 kV charge voltage. The trigger electrode divides the switch into two parts (positive and negative), each with three intermediate electrodes. The charge voltage is evenly distributed between these electrodes with a corona discharge. This allows safe operation of the switch when filled with air at pressures of about 3 ata. This report presents the design of the switch, and test results on a test bed and in a Marx bank.
