(Note, this is my first question on this site, please point out if there is something that I am doing wrong here.)
I have a thyratron that requires two separate power lines to attach to it. The two power lines meet at a single terminal on the thyratron tube.
One of the lines is a -100 volt DC and 100 milli-amp bias.
The other line is a series of 200 V pulses that are sent out at a frequency of 10 hertz. The pulses last for 0.4 micro seconds and have a rise and fall time of 1.5 kV/uS (the 200 V needs to be reached in 7.5 uS or less). Please also note that the pulses are only positive, so there are just 10 of these every second.
Since the pulses would probably mess up the DC bias, it seems reasonable that I would put a capacitor between the terminal and the pulse source and an inductor between the DC source and the terminal.
My question is, how should I calculate the capacitance and inductance that will be needed?
Also, could I just use a diode to protect the DC and pulse source?
