Paper Abstract

We discuss design of a multiple magnetron module and issues related to it including modelling of the phase-locking process with various geometries via a Van der Pol analysis. We also describe two important " confidence building" experiments one determined if the couplers load the magnetron output which would then restrict the number of couplers we would use. Another determined the effect of operating a magnetron with the axis of the cathode displaced from the axis of the magnet coils and showed we could use a single coil set for the entire module rather than individual coil sets for each magnetron. 1.
