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.
