    In the report we describe statistical simulation of the closure delay of the spark gap switch that was performed by using the standard OrCAD software [1]. Simulation indicates that the jitter of LTD cavity including some number of the bricks, each with its own spark gap switch, might be expressed as a function of the switch jitter and the brick number. That leads to the conclusion the more cavities includes some group of interest (like single LTD module, multi-module LTD driver, or any other cavity group of interest), the less is the jitter of the output pulse of that group.
