The main features of high-voltage electric pulse consolidation (HVC) of refractory powder materials and the resulting unique capabilities of the method are considered. The electro-thermal processes of HVC at the contacts between powder particles and at the macroscale of the entire consolidated sample are analyzed. The results of experimental studies of the parameters of high-voltage electrical impulse action in the processes of consolidation of high-temperature powder compositions, high-voltage welding of dissimilar materials, as well as high-voltage discharges in liquid are presented. The results of measuring the intensity of thermal radiation of the investigated materials under high-voltage electrical impulse action, recorded by the method of pulse photometry using photodiode sensors, which, together with the Rogowski coil, are components of the measuring complex developed by the authors, are presented.
