Abstract : The patent relates to protection of a traveling-wave tube provided by sensing of both body and collector currents, and upon determination that at least one of the sensed currents is not within a predetermined value, generating a fault signal. The fault signal is used to initiate shutdown of the grid modulator and the tube power supplies. Signal integration is included to reduce the tendency of the protection circuit to generate a fault signal which may otherwise arise from spurious transient noise signals.
