Description: This paper presents: (1) A brief review of existing neutral beam (NB) power supply technology for operating up to approximately 200 kV, 65 A; (2) Possibilities for using existing systems for next-generation NB sources, and associated problems; (3) A summary of the features of present systems which contribute to a high degree of complexity and/or cost; (4) A plea and proposal for minimizing cost and complexity of future systems operating up to approximately 300 kV; (5) A few comments pertaining to special problems associated with operating in the 300 to 1000-kV range; and (6) A listing of some specific task areas which we believe should receive early R and D effort.
