Itelco-Electrosys 400 kW RF Station Site Acceptance Test
2015 (English)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
The manufactured and delivered Itelco-Electrosys 400 kW RF station was tested on site at FREIA, in Uppsala August 31 through September 4 2015. The station could successfully deliver continuous pulsetrains with a power-level up to 400 kW. Each of the stations 200 kW tetrode based amplifier sections were mounted with TH-595 tetrode tubes from Thales and tuned for optimal performance. The gain of the tetrode amplifiers were roughly 15 dB with some variation between the two amplifier sections andthe overall gain was approximately 85 dB maximum.Some droop and phase distortion on the combined output pulse was measured caused primarily by a limited response time of the screen-grid power supply.
