Session 2 covers a broad spectrum of topics, ranging from circuit analysis methods through new circuit configurations to system applications, and also a component testing technique. In the first paper, Hayner et al. introduce a new pulse-width-modulated dc-to-dc boost converter, the Venable converter, in which current is fed continuously to the output capacitor, thereby alleviating the filtering requirements. In addition, the converter has high efficiency and transfer function properties that do not depend upon the duty ratio. Rostad et al, in the second paper,describe the application of the Venable converter to a series of satellite TWT power processors.
