    A trigatron is described having a rated voltage of 400 kv and a nanosecond actuation-time stability over a wide range of working voltages, which allows firing of up to eight spark channels in one discharge gap. For a commutated current of 18 nsec and a doubled electrical length of the shaping line equal to 130 ka more than half of the energy in the storage device is lost in the commutator in the one-spark operating regime; for operation of eight channels the energy losses in the commutator do not exceed 10% of the energy stored in the storage device.
