High current pulse striplines

Description

There are two different horn systems under construction at Fermilab for neutrino beamlines. The NuMI project requires a power supply that operates at 970 V, 205 kA, 2.6 ms, and 0.53 pps. The MiniBooNE project requires a power supply that operates at 5.5 kV, 170 kA, 140 {micro}s and 5 pps. Both require long low inductance connections between the power supply and horn; 60 feet for MiniBooNE and 230 feet for NuMI. This paper discusses several electrical and mechanical design requirements that have been overcome. These include low impedance, radiation hardness, voltage holdoff, clamping for electrical and mechanical connections and ... continued below

The MiniBooNE project requires a power supply that operates at 5.5 kV, 170 kA, 140 {micro}s and 5 pps. Both require long low inductance connections between the power supply and horn; 60 feet for MiniBooNE and 230 feet for NuMI. This paper discusses several electrical and mechanical design requirements that have been overcome. These include low impedance, radiation hardness, voltage holdoff, clamping for electrical and mechanical connections and humidity and dust control. Measurements of the inductance of the striplines and voltage holdoff will be compared to calculations. The results of some tests will be discussed.
