Abstract : This report describes the transformer driven accelerator in operation at NSWC. This accelerator, named Transbeam, uses a high-voltage step-up transformer for voltage multiplication, and a water-filled coaxial transmission line for pulse compression. For typical operating conditions the nominal output pulse has a 700 kV amplitude and a 100 ns duration. The accelerator's output impedance is 7 ohms. Theory of operation, engineering details, and characteristic result are discussed. Keywords: Accelerator; Electron beam; Ion beam.
