How arcing can become a problem in high voltage applications
In high voltage power supplies the output stage is capacitive by nature, which results in stored energy.
Whenever there is an arc discharge, the stored energy inside the power supply is quickly dispersed through an internal limiting resistance and carries high peak currents through the load.
The high-energy pulse magnitude, known as an EMT pulse, that occurs during an arc can damage the high voltage power supply and the load, as well as potentially disrupting sensitive control and microcontroller circuitry.
Solutions that can help avoid arcing-related problems
ARC current limiting resistor
Specifying limiting resistors to handle a high energy pulse is not always practical due to size and layout considerations. We incorporate a high value of series resistance which is enabled by our air-insulated topology which minimizes peak discharge currents and helps to minimize the EMT pulse to protect the load, high voltage components and equipment.
ARC sensing circuitry
The circuit counts arcs, and if the arc rate exceeds a safe amount over a set time, it inhibits the high voltage generation for a fixed interval. This ensures that the average power dissipation is below the rating of the current limiting resistors. The arc-sensing circuitry protects the power supply and the load.
