A compact torus (CT) injector operated at high repetition rates has been developed. A system consisting of a stack of insulated-gate bipolar transistors and storage capacitor banks (slow banks) for repetitive operation has been installed on the circuit of both CT formation and acceleration. Following the installation of silicon-controlled rectifiers for the purpose of triggering ignitrons at CT discharge circuits, a repetition rate of 10 Hz was achieved on the University of Saskatchewan CT Injector.
