Abstract
HIGH CURRENT ROTARY SWITCHES HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY USED TO REPETITIVELY COMMUTATE VERY HIGH CURRENTS. THE DEMONSTRATED COMMUTATION VOLTAGE CAPABILITY OF THESE SWITCHES IS LESS THAN 100 V. MANY APPLICATIONS REQUIRE VOLTAGES AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE HIGHER. THIS PROGRAM IS DIRECTED TO INCREASING THE COMMUTATION VOLTAGE OF ROTARY SWITCHES. TWO TECHNIQUES, RESISTANCE GRADING AND TWO-STAGE OPERATION WILL BE INVESTIGATED. THE MOST PROMISING TECHNIQUE WILL BE SELECTED AND DEMONSTRATED.
