Pulse-modulating a high-power oscillator can be accomplished by placing a switch in the plate power supply circuit of the oscillator.In this research, the author has designed an electronic switch, using a power tetrode, to pulse-modulate a General Electric, Model 4HD3B2, Electronic Dielectric Heater.Pulse modulation was obtained by pulsing the control grid to drive the tetrode into and out of conduction. Pulse repetition frequencies from 2.5 pulses per second to 3000 pulses per second and pulse widths from 400 milliseconds to 200 microseconds were obtained over a wide range in duty (0≤D≤1).
