Abstract
Linear electric circuit with constant parameters becomes a nonlinear one with parameters variable in time after vacuum discharge gap is connected to it. Change of discharge parameters occurs by cycle. Full vacuum discharge cycle includes predischarge, spark, arc phases and current break phase (Fig. 1). Discharge development by incomplete cycle as well as development of one and the same discharge by several parallel channels with different cycles are possible. Every moment discharge current I is limited by one ofthe factors and namely - cathode emission ability L, plasma emission ability I, vacuum gap conductivity P. outer circuit resistance R -but it can not be limited by simultaneous infidence of several these factors. Fragment of the scheme (Fig.2) reflecting succession of turning on of current limiting factors may present how the process ofevery discharge goes on.
