Using of FEM method for Design and Prediction of Static Behavior of Three Electrode Mid-Plane Spark Gap M. M. D. Attaran and S. Toroghi Company Inc., PulseNiru, Tehran, Iran In many Pulsed Power applications, three electrode mid-plane spark gap switches are used to discharge of capacitive energy. Therefore, the prediction of the influence of spark gap design parameters on its performance is critical. A Three electrode mid-plane spark gap has been numerically and experimentally investigated and designed. ANSYS finite element package used for static analyzing of the electric field distribution in the dielectric medium for designing spark gap switch with self-breakdown voltage 20% upper than desired operational voltage. In addition, we used FEM analysis at operational voltage to become assured that, before applying the trigger voltage, the electric field stress is under the self-breakdown electric field. Using this analysis at specific trigger voltage, we will be certain that the breakdown will occur.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
