Transportation and focusing of intense heavy-ion beams is an important issue for heavy ion beam-driven inertial confinement fusion and physics of high energy densities. Application of plasma lens offers certain advantages over traditional systems based on quadruple lenses. A description of the plasma lens with high-power high-current (up to 400 kA) TDI-pseudosparks as switching elements and experimental results of preliminary studies of plasma lens designed for heavy ion accelerator-accumulated facility TWAC-ITEP are reported. It is shown that a focusing capability of plasma lens depends on a stage of plasma discharge development. In a particular stage it is possible to employ sharp focusing and compress the beam into a very small spot. In other stages when the magnet field is non-linear it is possible to shape various beam configurations, in particular, tube structures. In the report the results of investigations implemented with beams of C+6 and F+6 ions with energy of 200 MeV/a.e.m. are reported. The obtained results are analyzed. © 2011 IEEE. Source

A pulse power system of the induction electron accelerator intended for parameters of 2 MeV, 2 kA, and operating in the double-pulse mode is presented. The schematic diagram and main elements of the pulse system are described, and the main technical solutions intended to produce a set of pulses with 21-kV peak voltages, peak currents of up to 8 kA, and 200-ns durations across a resistive-inductive load are indicated. The experimental data, which were obtained when separate units and the whole power system operated on the rated duty, are given. © Pleiades Publishing, Ltd., 2012. Source

The paper demonstrates the results of TDIl-200k/25SN-P pseudospark switch (PSS) developed by Russian company »Pulsed Technologies Ltd» application. PSS was used in pulsed power unit intended for electric-discharge fracture of rocks and concrete blocks and splitting off from monolith. The pulsed power unit has a pulse current generator with the capacity of 560 μF, stored energy of up to 63 kJ, operating voltage of up to15 kV, current pulse amplitude of up to 200 kA and pulse duration more than 200 μsec. The study also shows the current waveforms determined in the short-circuit experiment of the pulse current generator and in the experiments of the electric-discharge fragmentation of concrete at the charging voltage of 13 kV. PSS was operated in ringing single-pulse mode with the exceedance of more than two maximum permissible parameters: current pulse amplitude, current pulse duration and maximum pulse energy. Internal electrode erosion of PSS is shown and possible reasons of asymmetric current feed are discussed. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd. Source

The pseudospark (thyratrons TPI- and TDI-type) switch drivers design and applications in various pulsed power systems are presented. Drivers are constructed using modern IGBT transistors and triggered compact spark gaps, and feature both manual and remote digital control (CAN, Ethernet). TDI-thyratrons can serve as a replacement for ignitron, spark gap and triggered vacuum switches. The TDI drivers are made with multiple outputs for triggering up to 4 thyratrons in parallel or with HV isolated output for applications where the igniter and hydrogen reservoir of the thyratron are under high (transient) voltages. TPI-thyratrons were designed recently however, we have extensive experience in application and the methods of triggering/controlling of these switches. The trigger unit is a simple relaxation oscillator with DC and Pulsed Preionization, including single, double and triple pulse triggering techniques. In particular it is shown that when the requirement for a driver is to provide minimum time jitter (less 0.5ns), high anode current pulse stability and extended lifetime, the best option is triple-pulse triggering. Circuit design for trigger drivers BZ-TP/10 for TPI-thyratrons, optimized for the operation of the particle accelerator LIU-2 are described. © 2012 IEEE. Source

Repetitively pulsed generators of high-power high-frequency pulses based on sealed-off discharge chambers with a hollow cathode are described in this paper. Pulses of length 100-800 ns and power up to 250 kW at a frequency of 120 MHz with a repetition rate of 100 Hz were obtained using the chamber equipped with a H2 source. Pulses of length 1001300 ns and power up to 900 kW at a frequency of 120 MHz with a repetition rate of 100 Hz were obtained using the chamber of similar design and equipped with a H2 source. The chamber filled with H2 proved to be more efficient compared to the chamber filled with H2. © 2006 IEEE. Source
