voltage V RRM = 1200 V, maximum average forward current I FAVM = 450 A and reverse recovery time t rr = 450 ns. The fast recovery diodes bank was used to cutoff the second and the remaining halves of the period of current waveform.
Schematic diagram of the IPD device equipped with diodes bank.
The coaxial plasma accelerator was built of two titanium electrodes: the electrically separated central electrode in the form of a rod, and the grounded outer electrode which has the shape of a hollow cylinder.
The plasma processes were carried out in a
