Phase shifting question

  1. Feb 3, 2008 #1
    i have a simple question about klystrons.
    okay if i need say a 2 Mw rf pulse but i only have 10 200kw klystrons. assuming no regular losses. Can I connect these 10 klystrons in parallel. Do I need to phase shift the inputs of 9 to syncronize the outputs? Can I operate them continuously or will there be drift and phase shift correction needed on every pulse? what would be the maximum number of klystrons i could do this? Would this be the same as a multi beam klystron?
    my desired output would be a flat top square wave pulse.
    I wish I was smart like everyone here.
