    The plasma opening switches (POS) are interesting because of the possibility to create the high power pulse generatore with the inductive energy store [1]. The POS with microsecond conduction time (MPOS) are of particular interest allowing to eliminate the water forming lines in generator design. The GIT-4 [2] experience had shown that the further progress in this field would be determined by solving of two major problems [3J. The first is the increase of the conduction time, t c, At a given output voltage the increase of t c results in an increase of the power delivering to the inductive storage. The second is the problem with the MPOS resistance at opening. Its value determines the output voltage and power of the generator pulse.
