Providing examples of applications, Power Vacuum Tubes Handbook, Third Edition examines the underlying technology of each type of power vacuum tube device in common use today. The author presents basic principles, reports on new development efforts, and discusses implementation and maintenance considerations. Supporting mathematical equations and extensive technical illustrations and schematic diagrams help readers understand the material.
Translate Principles into Specific Applications
This one-stop reference is a hands-on guide for engineering personnel involved in the design, specification, installation, and maintenance of high-power equipment utilizing vacuum tubes. It offers a comprehensive look at the important area of high-frequency/high-power applications of microwave power devices, making it possible for general principles to be translated into specific applications. Coverage includes power grid tubes-triodes, tetrodes, and pentodes-as well as microwave power tubes such as klystrons, traveling wave tubes, gyrotrons, and other high-frequency devices. These vacuum tubes are used in applications from radio broadcasting to television, radar, satellite communications, and more.
Explore a Wide Variety of Methods in Power Vacuum Tube Design
This third edition includes updates on vacuum tube technology, devices, applications, design methods, and modulation methods. It also expands its scope to cover properties of materials and RF system maintenance and troubleshooting. Explaining difficult concepts and processes clearly, this handbook guides readers in the design and selection of a power vacuum tube-based system.
What's New in This EditionIncludes two new chapters on properties of materials and RF system maintenance and troubleshootingContains updates and additions in most chaptersIdentifies key applications for commercial and scientific researchExamines the frontiers of materials science directly impacting construction, reliability, and performanceReviews methods of power tube design for more efficient, longer-lasting tubesFeatures updated illustrations throughout to clarify and explain fundamental principles and implementation considerations

"This handbook provides outstanding coverage of the present art in high-power vacuum-tube design and operation. After reading this book the reader will be intimately familiar with modern vacuum tubes. Engineers involved with the design, installation, specification, and maintenance of high-power vacuum tubes will find this handbook an invaluable resource in their work. There are certainly very few books on vacuum tubes, and this one provides a wealth of current information on all the common vacuum tubes in use today."
-John J. Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, May/June 2013, Vol. 29, No. 3
Praise for Previous Editions
"...a valuable resource for practicing electrical engineers and others involved with vacuum tubes and related equipment."
