A 3.6 MW DC power supply system was developed for the 170 GHz EC H&CD system in KSTAR. It consists of a cathode power supply (CPS), an anode power supply (APS) and a body power supply (BPS). The CPS is capable of supplying a voltage of -66 kV and a current of 55 A to the cathode with respect to the collector using pulse step modulation (PSM). The APS is a voltage divider system consisting of a fixed resistor and zener diode units with the capability of 60 kV stand-off voltage. For high frequency current modulation, the parallel discharge switch is introduced between the cathode and anode. The BPS is a DC power supply with 50 kV/160 mA. The series MOS-FET solid-state switch is used for on/off modulation in the body voltage sychronizing with anode voltage. The parallel discharge switch is also introduced between the body and collector for high frequency RF modulation. This paper describes the key features of the high voltage power supply system as well as the test results.
