ESS

Testing of the ESS tetrode 352 MHz radiofrequency power source

Uppsala University, http://www.uu.se/

Project description

The 26 spoke cavities of ESS are powered by tetrode amplifiers at 352 MHz. In Freia Laboratory we have two prototypes from different manufacturers to work with. We will describe the modifications which had to be made and what the consequence it will make.
