PROTOTYPE TESTS OF THE ION SOURCE POWER SUPPLIES OF THE TEXTOR NI SYSTEM
The PINI ion source for the TEXTOR neutral injector is fed by an new modular transistorized power supply. All modules are located in a high voltage cage on 55 kV dc against ground. The normal operation of the injectors includes frequent grid breakdowns causing transient high voltage stresses on the ion source power supplies. These stresses must not disturb the safe operation of the power supplies. The paper describes the set-up for extensive testing of a supply prototype module under the expected operating conditions. The main features of this test program are reviewed and the measures taken for a safe operation are discussed. As results of the investigations recommendations for the installation of the power supplies at the TEXTOR NI system are given.
