Fast Pulsed Systems (FPS)

The FPS Section is responsible for design, development, construction, installation, exploitation and maintenance of all fast pulsed magnet (kicker) systems of the entire accelerator complex. Systems comprise the magnet modules (frequently in vacuum tanks), the high-voltage / high-current pulse generators, the fast switches (gas tubes or semiconductors), the pulse forming networks, the impedance matched power transmission and the ancillary hydraulic systems for cooling and insulation.
