Abstract : A high-voltage converter circuit which uses slop slide power conditioner to reduce non-monotonic nonlinearities in the converter output signal is disclosed. The slip slide power conditioner includes: a choke feed D.C. circulator; two radio frequency (RF) power pumps; a phase controller; and combiner. The choke feed D.C. circulator receives the D.C. input signal and produces therefrom two voltage output signals which are each sent to one of the two RF power pumps. The two RF power pumps produce two out of phase square wave output signals which are algebraically combined in the combiner to form an output signal whose amplitude is a function of phase difference. The phase detector and phase controller sample this output signal and adjust the phase of two power pumps to remove non-linearities due to secondary ranging (resonance) that beats with harmonics of their square wave signals.
