Abstract:

This project was performed under the DoD University Instrumentation Program. A state-of-the-art accelerator was designed, constructed, and tested with the following parameters Output working voltage 1 Megavolt Pulselength Adjustable to 1 microsecond from 0.1 microsecond Output Energy At least 10 kJoules in 1 microsecond within voltage flatness Current At least 10 kA into fixed resistance 100 ohm load Voltage deviation from flattop Predicted to be less than or - 7 voltage fluctuation into variable diode impedance which decreases from 300 ohms to 50 ohms during the 1 microsecond pulse. Less than or - 5 total voltage deviation into fixed resistance load of 100 ohms. Unique circuitry was included in the generator to permit electrical compensation for diode impedance droop. Author
