RE: [TCML] Spark gaps, Solid state switches and diodes

So decreasing the capacitor charge time increases the break rate.  What
happens as the charging current is increased?  In other words, what is the
first component block to fail.  And, what can be done to make this component
more robust, allowing the fastest possible switching time, with a 49%
on-time duty cycle?
