Overview of the ETA/ATA pulse power

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A pulsed electron accelerator has been constructed and is now in operation at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. This Experimental Test Accelerator (ETA) a 5 MeV, 10 kA, 50 ns FWHM, five pulse burst at 1 kHz, was designed to be the front end or injector for the Advanced Test Accelerator (ATA). The ATA is presently under construction and will have the following parameters: beam energy - 50 MeV, beam current - 10 kA, pulse length - 70 ns, repetition rate in a ten pulse burst - 1 kHz. The parameters which make the pulse power components unique for these machines ... continued below

Description

A pulsed electron accelerator has been constructed and is now in operation at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory. This Experimental Test Accelerator (ETA) a 5 MeV, 10 kA, 50 ns FWHM, five pulse burst at 1 kHz, was designed to be the front end or injector for the Advanced Test Accelerator (ATA). The ATA is presently under construction and will have the following parameters: beam energy - 50 MeV, beam current - 10 kA, pulse length - 70 ns, repetition rate in a ten pulse burst - 1 kHz. The parameters which make the pulse power components unique for these machines are the high repetition rate in a burst and a high degree of regulation in the system to insure pulse to pulse repeatability. Because of the larger number of components requird for ATA, a much higher degree of reliability will be required. Improvements and modifications continue to be made on the ETA, which is serving as a base of development for all ATA pulse power components. Furthermore, all ATA pulse power components will be tested at length in a test stand before beginning mass production to insure proper design to meet voltage, current, rep-rate and life requirements.
