An experimental study of high-frequency (126, 230 kHz) vacuum arc interruption behavior and the voltage escalation processes at a small gap length (⩽1 mm) for three contact materials (Cu, CuCr, and CuTeSe) is discussed. Two experimental methods have been used: current injection in a low-voltage circuit and in a 10-kV AC circuit. Experimental results of the high-frequency current interruption ability and the dielectric breakdown voltage are presented. Three kinds of breakdown are distinguished: the reignition voltage, the breakdown voltage, and the cold breakdown voltage. It has been found that the interruption ability is directly related to the reignition voltage
