AbstractThis project addresses very high power switches for accelerators used in high-energy physics research and particle research, which seeks to broaden understanding of fundamental physical properties. The accelerator community requires devices with higher performance and especially fast switching times under high-power conditions. MTECH has developed a novel topology that potentially increases both switching performance and efficiency, and will apply this technology to high-voltage, high-current modulators. Phase I will demonstrate the technology at the 6-kV, 2-kA power level, and Phase II will involve developing and testing of high-power modulator circuitry. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: The proposed technology also holds great potential for use in future high-efficiency power distribution systems, power conversion for renewable energy sources tied to superconducting transmission lines, and high-efficiency motor drives for manufacturing facilities.
