Abstract:

The design and applications of high-voltage-range series current regulators are discussed. A sample design maintains the current to within 1 of a selected value between 100 microampere and 50 MA over a 15-kV voltage range. The regulator is ideal for regulating or pulsing laser gas discharges. The circuit can also be used as a high-output voltage amplifier in this service it can deliver 10 kHz with 1.4 total harmonic distortion. Author
