The Decade Quad water coupler was designed to pass 10MA into a shorted load and 8MA into a 300ns imploding plasma load. This paper discusses the electrical design of Decade Quad PRS from the water coupler to the load. The coupler structure was modeled using TLCODE. Reliability estimates are made for various components. The electrical design of the coupler diverters and their role in fault mode energy suppression is discussed. The vacuum MITL design is discussed. A detailed circuit model is shown, along with a simpler equivalent circuit model. The predicted electrical performance is compared to recent test data.
