|Abstract:||This paper describes an approach of designing a coupled-cavity slow wave structure (CC-SWS) for a high power traveling wave tube (TWT) using HFSS code, which is a 3-D high frequency electromagnetic simulator. The criteria of deciding the initial design parameters of a cavity are first discussed. Method of computing the dispersion and impedance characteristics of the CC-SWS has been discussed. Analysis was carried out for single and double-slot CC-SWS with coupling slots. Mesh size was optimized for speed and maximum accuracy. The CPU time on Pentium-4, 2.66 GHz system with 1 GB RAM was less then 25 min for three or four cavities. Results of HFSS are matched with the experimental results for a C-band coupled cavity SWS and also compared with the results of analytical method.|
