Impulse testing systems are designed to generate impulse voltages that simulate lightning strikes and switching surges. The complete test system consists of a charging rectifier, impulse stages according to the "Marx Circuit", an impulse voltage divider and impulse voltage measurement system. The applications are defined by IEC, ANSI/IEEE and other national standards.
Impulse Test Sets are also available as current impulse generators used primarily for surge arrestor testing.
HV TECHNOLOGIES, Inc. has a long tradition of supplying impulse generators for HV applications as well as impulse test systems for the EMC, avionics, and military industries. All our generators from 100 kV to 1000 kV are assembled and tested at our facilities in Manassas, VA. Generators up to 1600 kV are available.
