Analyses aimed at optimizing power-to-size ratios of the device and determination of operating limits are reported. Various techniques for generation of high voltage pulses suitable for driving the Travatron are analyzed and tested. A breadboard model Travatron generating over 10 MW peak power in 10 ns pulses at 1.3 GHz is also described.
