COCKROFT WALTON VOLTAGE MULTIPLIER PDF

One way to look at the circuit is that it functions as a charge "pump", pumping electric charge in one direction, up the stack of capacitors. The CW circuit, along with other similar capacitor circuits, is often called charge pump. For substantial loads, the charge on the capacitors is partially depleted, and the output voltage drops according to the output current divided by the capacitance. Characteristics[ edit ] In practice, the CW has a number of drawbacks.

Meshicage This is particularly useful when the charging stack capacitors are significantly smaller than the output filter capacitors. Cockrodt help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Assume the circuit is powered by an alternating voltage V i with a peak value of V pand initially the capacitors are uncharged. All the capacitors are charged to a voltage of 2 V pexcept for C1which is charged to V p. Increasing the frequency can dramatically reduce the ripple, and the voltage drop under load, which accounts for the popularity driving a multipler stack with a switching power supply.

To understand the circuit operation, see the diagram of the two-stage version at right. It was named after the British and Irish physicists John Douglas Cockcroft and Ernest Thomas Sinton Waltonwho in used dockroft circuit design to power their particle acceleratorperforming the first artificial nuclear disintegration in history.

The CW circuit, along with other similar capacitor circuits, is often called charge pump. In some applications, this is an advantage. This is particularly popular in electrostatic accelerator applications and high voltage x-ray systems, where low ripple desired.

In some applications, an addtional capacitor stack mutliplier connected to the output capacitor stack in the above design. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history. For these reasons, CW multipliers with large number of stages boltage used only where relatively low output current is required. It has the advantage of requiring relatively low cost components and being easy to insulate. Unlike the Cockcroft-Walton multiplier generatorthe Marx generator need air wzlton the spark gaps and can not be immersed in oil vlltage an insulator.

Wikimedia Commons has media related to Cockcroft-Walton generators. As you can see from this equation, the ripple grows quite rapidly as the number of stages increases as n squared, in fact. After the input voltage is turned on. The number of stages is equal to the number of capacitors in series between the output and ground.

It is made up of a voltage multiplier ladder network of capacitors and diodes to generate high voltages. Taken from the High Power Microwave Transmitters report by North, here is a three phase multiplier circuit. It is used in virtually every television set made to generate the kV second anode accelerating voltage from a transformer putting out kV pulses.

The key to the voltage multiplication is that while the capacitors are charged in parallel, they are connected to the load in series.

CW multipliers are typically used to develop higher voltages for relatively low-current applications, such as bias voltages ranging from tens or hundreds of volts to millions of volts for high-energy physics experiments or lightning safety testing.

Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. The XXX modification is illustrated in the following figure. The CW multiplier has the disadvantage of having very poor voltage regulation, that is, the voltage drops rapidly as a function the output current. The output voltage Eout is nominally the twice the peak input voltage Eac multiplied by the number of stages, 4 in the above diagram.

For this reason, this doubler cascade is sometimes also referred to as the Greinacher multiplier. It is quite popular for relatively low powered particle accelerators for injecting into another accelerator, particularly for heavy ions. In a full-wave rectifier it is three times the input voltage.

It is used in virtually every television set made to generate the kV second anode accelerating voltage from a transformer putting out kV pulses. It has the advantage of requiring relatively low cost components and being easy to insulate. It also inherently produces a series of stepped voltages which is useful in some forms of particle accelerators, and for biasing photomultipler tube dynodes. The CW multiplier has the disadvantage of having very poor voltage regulation, that is, the voltage drops rapidly as a function the output current. In some applications, this is an advantage. Furthermore, the ripple on the output, particularly at high loads, is quite high. It is quite popular for relatively low powered particle accelerators for injecting into another accelerator, particularly for heavy ions.
