Abstract : The patent relates to a power supply system for a high voltage klystron tube amplifier. The additional energy required to maintain the body-cathode voltage relatively constant is provided by a surge pass tube, with a relatively simple boost power supply, cooperating with a single high voltage supply. Regulation of the body-cathode voltage is obtained to the relatively inconsequential detriment of the regulation of the body-collector voltage.
