The RITS-6 induction voltage adder (IVA) electron accelerator has an output voltage of 7–12 MV and beam currents from about 10 kA to 170 kA depending on the diode employed and the two options impedance of the magnetically insulated transmission line (MITL). The determination of the diode voltage has traditionally be done by a combination of parapotential flow theory in the MITL and translating the voltage pulse to the diode or solving radiographers equations for the x-ray dose rate. However the… CONTINUE READING
