The Next Linear Collider accelerator is developing a high efficiency, highly reliable, and low cost pulsed-power modulator to drive the NLC 500KV, 230A X band klystrons. To demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed induction modulator, a 10 section Solid State Induction Modulator has been assembled to drive a single 5045 klystrons in the SLAC linac. The Induction Modulator replaces the existing modulators PFN and thyratron and drives the klystron using its existing conventional pulse transformer. The Status of the proposed thousand-megawatt NLC Solid State induction modulator will be discussed, and the results of the 5045 klystron modulator test.
