Paper Abstract

Using three kinds of copper electrodes with different surface areas, experiments were performed to investigate the influence of electrode area on conditioning effect, which is a characteristic of dielectric breakdowns in vacuum gaps. The conditioning process varied with electrode area: the smaller the electrode area, the sooner conditioning ended. Breakdown voltages after completion of conditioning also depended on electrode area: the smaller the electrode area, the higher the breakdown voltage.
