Abstract:

The study, the design, and the development of a high power solid- state radar modulator operating into a resistive dummy load, including, the study and experimentation performed on the individual inductive and solid-state components are described. The seriesing of trinistors, as well as trinistor characteristics are described in considerable detail. Finally, the modulator breadboard is described and evaluated. The breadboard develops 5 Mega-watts of peak power and operates at 300 pps. The pulse width is approximately 5 micro-seconds.
