Abstract : This report includes the efforts expended on device refinement circuit design and development of a building for high power modulators utilizing the Type 291 flat packaged thyristor in a series stack configuration. An experimental breadboard modulator having a minimum holdoff of 10KV and switching a minimum of 375 amperes has been designed and the preliminary stages of construction are described. The preliminary design of a 65KV modulator using these building blocks as major components is described. (Author)
