Abstract:

Proper accelerator assembly is critical in maximizing the return on investment of project funds. This critical task is most often accomplished by trained technicians. Pulsed Power-driven X-ray source assembly includes project planning, system design, drawing creation, and review as vital steps toward project success. The actual assembly procedures also are critical in ensuring the accelerator performs properly and will continue to perform efficiently and safely for years. This paper presents information on assembly concerns, including hardware selection, material selection, material treatments, documentation concerns and general assembly guidelines. This paper will mainly focus on oil and water containing sections including Pulse Forming Lines and Induction Voltage Adders.
