Development of the Full Package of Gyrotron Simulation Code

  • Ashwini Sawant
  • EunMi ChoiEmail author


A complete code-package for gyrotron simulation to analyze its performance is under development in UNIST, Korea. We first time report the present status of the code-package named as UNIST Gyrotron Design Tool (UGDT). It can perform design simulations for gyrotron’s interaction cavity, RF window, and the essential mode calculations including the study of mode competition. We will discuss about its salient features, theory, numerical implementation, and its calculation result for 95 GHz UNIST Gyrotron. Moreover, we will validate its capability to perform the mode competition calculation for fundamental and second harmonic modes.
