Abstract:

A recirculating planar magnetron RPM, operating in the pi-mode and utilizing a compact, waveguide-based extraction scheme was simulated using ICEPIC. At an applied voltage of 300 kV and B-field of 0.140T, output power of the six-module RPM was 565 MW with 33 efficiency. The oscillator was found to operate at frequency of 2.245 GHz. Increasing the number of extracted modules in the RPM was found to result a linear increase in power at the rate of 120 MW per module.
