Threedimensional relativistic fieldelectron interaction in a multicavity highpower klystron. Part 2: Working Equations
Abstract
A high power multicavity klystron amplifier was designed and a computation package containing all equations and procedures needed is presented. The rigorously derived three dimensional relativistic axisymmetric equations of motion are used to compute the bunched current and the induced RF gap voltage for all interaction cavities except the input and second cavities, where the linear space charge wave theory data are employed in order to reduce the computation time. Both distance step and time step integration methods are used to compute the Fourier coefficients of both the beam current and induced current.
