Comparison of the division ratios measured on different high voltage pulse calibration systems

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Both resistive and capacitive divider standards are used to measure pulse voltages with microsecond risetimes and amplitudes of hundreds of kilovolts. The dividers are composed entirely of passive components and should exhibit relatively constant impedance as a function of frequency, risetime and voltage. To the extent that this is not the case, these factors increase the uncertainty of the divider ratio. This paper presents a statistical comparison of the ratios of several voltage dividers using different high voltage pulse generators to gain insight as to the influence of the design of the divider and characteristics of the generator on the ... continued below
