Analysis of the current waveforms observed in underwater spark discharges

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The dynamic behaviour of the resistance of a circuit consisting of a capacitive pulse power supply with a load consisting of a plasma channel formed in an underwater gap has been determined from the current transients measured during the breakdown of the gap.
