TWT Theory Of Operation

A TWT can be described as a wideband microwave amplifier that utilizes an interaction circuit, or transmission line, and does not usually contain any resonant. TWTs incorporate many basic components, including an electron gun, an RF circuit, an attenuator, and a collector. This white paper further discusses TWT characteristics and operational theory, including the effects of input/output conditions on TWTs, and cooling requirements.
