Abstract
The objective of the proposed research and development work is to create two new types of ultra-compact, energy efficient, high voltage switches. These switches will be used to deliver the energy from power supplies that store very small (0.5-5 J) amounts of prime energy to loads of different types. es. The overall dimensions of switches of both types will not exceed 20 mm. The operating voltage depends on the design and materials, and it can be gradually set from 10 to 150 kV. The energy consumption of the switches will be 50 mJ, maximum, at 150 kV operating voltage. The switches will function properly with both explosive-driven and conventional pulsed power systems, and they will withstand high g-force loads. The technology of their manufacturing can be well established. There will be no expensive parts and materials in the switches, and their cost will be very low.
