PROJECT TITLE :
A 3-D Large Signal Model for Sheet Beam Traveling Wave Tubes
A 3-D frequency domain large signal code called sheet beam traveling-wave tube 3-D (SBTWT3-D) for illustrating the nonlinear beam–wave interaction in the SBTWT is presented in this paper. A recent published field theory model for illustrating the staggered double-grating arrays waveguide (SDGAW) slow-wave structure is adopted in the code to obtain the RF circuit fields’ distribution and ohmic loss. The sheet beam is simulated by a set of discrete rays. The ac and dc space-charge fields are obtained by solving the discrete Helmholtz equations and the discrete Poisson equation, respectively. A 3-D nonlinear beam–wave interaction analysis for a W-band SDGAW SBTWT is performed and the calculation results are compared with those obtained from time-domain 3-D particle-in-cell simulations.
