Application of intense relativistic electron beams to the switching of high currents in high power electrical networks
MetadataShow full item record
A new concept of switching of high currents using intense relativistic electron beams propagating in vacuum drift tubes is presented. Some possible applications of this concept for the design of current switches are discussed. Supporting analytical one-dimensional theory of an electron beam switch is given. Electron beam hysteresis phenomenon associated with the switching mechanism is briefly discussed.
