Hi all, I'm in a big trouble finding a switch that discharges a capacitor with 20kV on it. My circuit requires to do this very qwickly (tens of nanoseconds), but I cannot use a single switch because the only existing one that can allow this voltage is a Thyratron, and I don't want to use it. So what I want to do is to put in series a bunch of switches (like FAST HIGH VOLTAGE SOLID-STATE SWITCHES) and to open them at once. The point is that the opening action takes place not "exactly" at the same time for different switches (jitter). This discrepancy in time can cause a single Switcher (maybe the last one that starts conducting) to have the entire 20kV voltage between its electrodes, thus breaking it. I was thinking of a circuit to be in parallel with the series of switches, but didn't find anything working. Can somebody help me? Thank you all, C.
