Paper Abstract

An experimental circuit which can be used to measure the phenomena of HF (high frequency) vacuum arc is built. Numerous measurements are carried out and the number of half-cycles of the HF vacuum arc, which is considered important to the over voltage caused by multiple reignition of vacuum switch, is input into computer. A calculating method is developed to calculate the mean value of the number of half-cycles of vacuum arc at various fixed gaplengths and circuit parameters. The calculated results fit the experimental ones very well. It is concluded that the number of half-cycles of HF vacuum arc depends strongly to the frequency dependent decaying constant of the high HF circuit and the parasitic or lumped capacitor parallel to the vacuum interrupter.
