Abstract:

Tests at very long pulse lengths were conducted to evaluate the design concepts of the S94000E regulator tube at the Rome Air Development Center. Voltages as high as 200 KV have been switched for pulse lengths of 0.5 seconds and at anode dissipation levels that exceeded 2.0 million Watts. Tubes similar to the one tested will be employed as series regulators in the TOKAMAK Fusion Test Reactor. This paper discusses the tube, test results, and operational experiences associated with those tests.
