Conference Paper

The commutation of energy from an inductive energy storage Pulse Forming Network (PFN) to a load requires high power opening switches. The problems associated with this are numerous as requirements reach far into the tens of kA and kV. This paper examines relationship between standard storage topologies and their opening switches, and draws attention to the possible problems one could encounter.
