Paper Abstract

The phase locking in a rising-sun, L-band, 100 MW pulsed magnetron has been investigated using a powerful computer program called MAGIC. It has been shown that in the process of phase locking the injection signal eliminates the initial space-charge noise and consequently speeds up the start of oscillations. Also small-signal results for the locking bandwidth have been extended to nonlinear regime of operation. The modelling of the system to the voltage pulse jitter is still being investigated. In the process an accurate phase measuring technique has been developed.
