Abstract:

This report treats characterization of the pulse transformer at TNO PML Pulse Physics, Delft. The pulse transformer constitutes the final step of an energy compression system, called the Kapitza facility, and is able to amplify the current up to 24 times. The pulse transformer consists of a primary single layer winding of 24 turns which is enclosed by an aluminium secondary winding, consisting of one inner- and one outer which are coupled in parallel. Characterization means determination of the electrical quantities, such as the ohmic resistance and the inductance of the primary and secondary windings. A current source able to deliver single-wave currents with adjustable frequencies was used. From the measurement it appears that the main inductances decrease and the ohmic parasitic included currents in aluminum secondary winding.
