On the RF Distribution System for a Set of Standing-Wave Accelerator Structures

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

In this paper, we study the RF feeding system for a set of standing-wave accelerator structures. To avoid the initial reflections produced by the structures, sometimes these structures are fed in pairs through a four-port 3-dB Hybrid. We present an extension to this system for an arbitrary number of accelerator structures and show it is always possible to cancel the reflection back to the source. The necessary and sufficient condition for this to happen depends only on the spacing between accelerator structures. In this system, the structures are not fed in a binary hierarchal system, rather in series with a ... continued below

Description

In this paper, we study the RF feeding system for a set of standing-wave accelerator structures. To avoid the initial reflections produced by the structures, sometimes these structures are fed in pairs through a four-port 3-dB Hybrid. We present an extension to this system for an arbitrary number of accelerator structures and show it is always possible to cancel the reflection back to the source. The necessary and sufficient condition for this to happen depends only on the spacing between accelerator structures. In this system, the structures are not fed in a binary hierarchal system, rather in series with a set of directional couplers designed to bleed off an equal amount of power to each accelerator structure in the set. We study the sensitivity of such a system to errors resulting from the differences in accelerator structures spacing. We also study the sensitivity of the system to component imperfections, such as the finite directivity of the directional couplers, and the residual reflections from the loads that are attached to these couplers. We also study the system under fault conditions, such as a breakdown in an accelerator structure or a feed waveguide.
