The gyrotron system for ECRH and burn control on ITER requires rf power of at least 50 MW at frequencies near to 170GHz operating in CW. To meet these requirements, high efficiency gyrotron tubes with a minimum of 1 MW power output capability are necessary as well as simple coupling to either a quasi-optical or waveguide transmission line. Such gyrotrons require the use of an advanced internal quasi-optical converter, cryogenic window and depressed collector. The mode selection and cavity design is a compromise between many design constraints. The feasibility study of this gyrotron has been completed, in the framework of the ITER Emergency Task Agreement 1993.
