Abstract: For the gyrotron with the triode-gun and the depressed-collector, it is shown that modulation of voltages can be coordinated so that a relatively large frequency shift will be followed with only a small change of the output power. The modulation method is applicable to systems where the fast discrete electron cyclotron wave beam switching will be used in tokamaks to suppress hydrodynamic plasma instabilities.
Keywords: Gyrotron, Tokamaks, Voltage-modulated.
