LTD Linear Transformer Driver - ITHPP

The Linear Transformer Driver (LTD) technology allows a direct attack of the load without shaping the output pulse. The pulses produced may have pulse durations of between 1 μs and less than 100 ns, output voltages greater than mega volts and / or currents exceeding a mega amp.

Simple, compact and modular, this technology is perfectly suited to numerous research applications where a large current or voltage is required, such as:

  • plasma physics with a large range of densities and temperatures;
  • studying of intense particle beams;
  • creation of extreme conditions in matter.

With a similar principle to that used in the IVA (Inductive Voltage Adder), LTD technology has a number of advantages:

  • compactness;
  • limited requirements for utilities;
  • modularity and simplicity;
  • adaptability to a broad range of load impedances;
  • reduced manufacturing, operating and maintenance costs.
