The contract scope includes the supply of transformers in 2011, rated at 125 megavolts ampere (MVA), to be delivered and installed at various substations in the Oman power grid.
The company has recently installed a power plant with capacity of 3 megavolts.
Present HIF power plant concepts require, 50-100 Amperes of beam current arranged in multiple beam channels of about 0.5 Amperes each, with an injection energy of about 1.6 Megavolts. An effective way to do this, which overcomes space charge limits, is to produce these high current beams by merging a large number of high-current beamlets.
Nanopulses are created by generating powerful electric fields, which reach levels of tens of megavolts per metre, in bursts lasting only a billionth of a second.
