New resistor voltage grading system at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory 25URC tandem accelerator; installation and first experience
Description: On June 27,1994, installation work was completed on a new resistor-based voltage grading system for the Holifield facility tandem accelerator. This new system replaces the original point-plane corona-discharge system which had inherent disadvantages. Perhaps the worst disadvantages of corona-discharge systems are poor gap-to-gap voltage homogeneity and very low grading currents. It is believed that the resistor-based system will reduce or eliminate these disadvantages as well as some others.
