• Flashover prevention on polystyrene high voltage insulators in a vacuum 

    Benwell, Andrew L., 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Increasing performance of vacuum insulator barriers is a common goal in large pulsed power systems. Insulator performance is continually being improved while new methods are developed. Triple point shielding techniques ...
  • A high voltage piezoelectric transformer for active interrogation 

    Benwell, Andrew L., 1980- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    A resonant piezoelectric transformer circuit was developed for high voltage generation. The goal of this project was to produce 100 kV with a reasonably sized piezoelectric crystal. Several mechanisms leading to less than ...
