High-Power Electromagnetic signals have been classified into four groups depending on their bandwidth. Such a classification is based on emerging technologies of both pulse power and antenna systems in each of the 4 categories namely: a) Narrowband , b) Mesoband , c) Ultra- moderate band and d) Hyperband. In this workshop we focus on the pulse power requirements for each of these high-power systems.
By attending this workshop, you will:
• Understand conventional pulse power with capacitive storage elements
• Learn about the challenges posed on common R, L and C elements by high-voltage and high-frequency applications
• Gain insight into Pulse transformer operating principles and their impact on DES
• Discuss solutions posed by breakdown voltage jitter through employing triggered spark gaps, including implications of the complexity and expense of triggered spark gaps, which discourages their use in many applications
• Talk through different applications and requirements of pulse power systems, including high-power Impulse Radiating Antennas (single ended and differential), Pulse Power for HEMP simulators; Pulse adaptation for GTEM cells; and Solid state pulsers
