Abstract:

A compact 1 MV Long Pulse Generator, developed for high power microwave application of electron beam sources, is described. Such applications require voltage pulse flat-top with low ripple - 1 percent and low droop - 2 percent. For the present application variable pulse widths of 0.1 to 10 microsecond into a fixed load 200 to 1 k omega up to 500 kV, and 0.1 to 1 microsecond for voltage above 500 kV and up to 1 MV were required. This pulse generator is presently in operation in the new Long Pulse Accelerator Facility at the Naval Research Laboratory, Plasma Physics Division.
