Paper Abstract

Repetitively pulsed (rep-rate) power systems are currently found in a diverse range of technologies. One particular aspect of interest within rep-rate system development is the characterization of the electrical breakdown of dielectric and insulating materials in the power components for these applications. Very little information exists in the literature concerning the effects of rep-rate stresses on these materials. A facility to simulate the high voltage stresses which occur in rep-rate systems has been developed at the University at Buffalo. These unique high voltage and instrumentation equipment are described with insulation breakdown results.
