This report describes work done from May through December, 1976 on the Repetitive Series Interrupter, a hydrogen thyratron modified for switch-opening operation. Parametric studies of tube behavior, particularly of tube voltage drop and current-quenching requirements, are given, with further notes of tube performance and operational characteristics. Experimental modifications are mentioned and proposed continuations of work are discussed.
