HIGH VOLTAGE PULSE
|Abstract:||Solid-state modulators for pulsed power applications have been a goal since the first fast high-power semiconductor devices became available. Recent improvements in both the speed and peak power capabilities of semiconductor devices developed for the power conditioning and traction industries have led to a new generation of solid-state switched high power modulators with performance rivaling that of hard tube modulators and thyratron switched line-type modulators. Many of the high-voltage power conditioning requirements of the accelerator community have been satisfied by the use of conventional thyratron, ignitron, spark gap, when more waveform control is required. Modulators using these switching devices have limitations with regard to various combinations of repetition rate, lifetime, efficiency, pulse width agility, average power, cost, and sometimes switch availability. As accelerator requirements become more demanding, particularly with regard to average power, lifetime, pulse width agility, and repetition rate, some of these conventional switching devices are inadequate. However use of solid-state devices in these applications has been held back by device limitations usually in voltage rating, peak switching power, or switching speed. A range of potential applications for power modulator technology, including manufacturing, processing, medicine, transportation, energy management, and environmental cleanup. Pulsed power devices as heart defibrillators, paint strippers, food sterilizers, package sealers, and plastics treatment devices. In this dissertation "FPGA Based High Voltage Pulse Power Supply" was designed and developed. The switching signals for the Pulse Forming Network were issued with the help of SPARTAN 3 FPGA kit.|
