1 TS01 Klystron Modulator Minh Nguyen May 20, 2014 Beam Voltage Stability Improvements

2 TS01 current modulator status TS01 modulator has been running without PFN voltage regulation. Klystron beam voltage stability measures ~ 1000 ppm (rms) at 300kV, 120Hz Restore existing de-Q’ing regulation chassis #1 and #2 and measure PFN voltage and beam voltage stability at various voltage levels and pulse repetition rates 30, 33, 35, 38, and 41kV (PFN from Ross HV divider) 240, 260, 280, 300, and 320kV (Beam voltage) 10, 30, 60, and 120Hz 2

6 6 Motivation for TS01 improvements Klystron beam voltage stability is mainly dependent on modulator PFN voltage stability and thyratron operating conditions PFN voltage with original de-Q’ing regulation circuitry is stable within 120 – 150 ppm (rms) Fine PFN voltage regulation can be achieved by the use of a low power, high frequency capacitor charger (HVPS) in conjunction with existing high power resonant charger. The HVPS charges and regulates PFN capacitor voltage - on top of the resonant voltage – up to 0.5% target voltage Two previously upgraded modulators in the Linac 21-1 and 24- 8 have shown to improve beam voltage stability to < 100 ppm

7 7 Scope of TS01 modulator upgrade Install a new 50kV TDK-Lambda HVPS to charge the PFN capacitors in parallel to existing resonant charger Install new PFN voltage regulator chassis and Ross HV divider to provide voltage regulation for both the resonant charger and the TDK-Lambda HVPS Install and modify other components to improve the beam voltage stability Tail clipper to reduce klystron backswing voltage SCR thyratron driver to provide negative bias on thyratron grid 2 Thyratron grid drive circuit to minimize trigger rise and delay time Replace the thyratron if necessary after assessing the performance of the upgrade

16 16 TS01 upgrade schedule TDK-Lambda 50kV HVPS purchase requires 14wks of lead time. To meet the UED@ASTA project schedule, we have to borrow/move this HVPS and other upgraded components as needed from Linac modulator 24-8
