Abstract

A system of differential equations for the RLC circuit of a capacitor-switch assembly was derived being supplemented with an equation for the spark resistance of the switch in accordance with the Braginsky model. The parameters that affect the solutions of equations for the circuit with parallel or series connection of several capacitor-switch assemblies to a common inductive load were determined. Based on numerical solution of the system of equations, a dependence of the energy ES released in the spark within the first halfperiod on the discharge circuit and switch parameters was found.
