RF Power System

The RF Power System is composed of 18 RF power generators to feed the 8 RFQ couplers (200 kW), the 8 superconducting half wave resonators of the SRF Linac (105 kW) and the 2 buncher cavities (16 kW). Except for the buncher cavities, which are fed by full solid-state amplifiers, the same topology has been chosen for all the power chains for standardization and scale economy reasons: they use the same main components (solid-state pre-driver and tetrodes for driver and final amplifier) which can be individually tuned to provide different RF output powers up to 200 kW.
