A new, ac to high voltage dc converter system for radar transmitters is described. The system utilizes a gated resonant SCR inverter and full wave voltage multiplier to develop 45 kV at 30 kW average power with excellent dynamic regulation performance. Design considerations are discussed and measured performance data presented.
