Abstract—Pulsed power engineering has found many applications of great importance in areas of defense, nuclear physics, civilian, industrial and medical etc. In all these applications Marx generators are the primary source of generation of pulsed voltage/current. For the erection of Marx generator, a proper triggering mechanism is implemented for the first spark gap electrode, which gives consistent breakdown for all the remaining spark gaps in the Marx column. This paper discusses the design and development of a simple, inexpensive and compact trip pulse generator. This triggering mechanism provides the control triggering to operate the Marx generator at definite time. The experimental results reveal that the output voltage of trip pulse generator is able to make air breakdown in the first electrode gap.
Index Terms—Marx generator, spark gap electrodes, controlled triggering, trip pulse generator, breakdown voltage
