Abstract : This patent describes a circuit to control the RF drive to a gridded traveling wave tube (GTWT) to operate the tube in saturation across the entire RF band and at all PRF's and pulse widths. Control is attained by sensing the GTWT output and using a feedback circuit to vary an input variable attenuator to the GTWT based upon whether the output is increasing or decreasing. (Author)
