Simulation of Current-Voltage Characteristics of Triode Technological High Voltage Glow Discharge Electron Sources with Taking into Account Processes of Interaction of Charged Particles in Anode Plasma

TThe paper studies the problems of mathematical simulation of triode high voltage discharge gap and defines its current-voltage characteristics. We obtain analytical relations to calculate current voltage characteristics of triode high voltage glow discharge (HVGD) electron sources. The proposed calculation technique is based on analyzing charged particles balance in HVGD anode plasma taking into account the condition of self-dependence of its lighting. The model is very simple and universal.
