Development of long pulse and high power 170 GHz gyrotron

Sakamoto, Keishi; Kasugai, Atsushi; Minami, Ryutaro; Takahashi, Koji; Kobayashi, Noriyuki*

The present status of ITER gyrotron development of JAERI is reported. Up to now, we demonstrated 100 sec operation at 0.5 MW level power output. On the other hand, some issues were recognized for CW operation, i.e., the beam current decreased as pulse duration expanded. And the large amount of stray RF of 170 GHz exists in the gyrotron. Former, pre-programming control of the heater power of electron gun was introduced to keep the beam current constant. Latter, the inner surface of the radiator was optimized to minimize the diffraction, and loss was reduced by 1/5. Prior to the RF pulse extension, we tried an electron beam test without RF oscillation. As a result, the constant beam current was demonstrated up to 1000 sec.
