This book addresses several issues related to the metrological characterization of high-performance pulsed power converters. In the introduction a background and state-of-the-art on measurement systems for highperformance power converters are presented. In industrial applications of high performance power converter metrology, specifications are often given in terms of worst-case uncertainty (WCU). For this reason, an analytical model for predicting the WCU of a measurement system is discussed and detailed for instruments affected by Gaussian noise. The authors then discuss the study and design of a reference acquisition system for characterizing high-power pulses and an on-line acquisition system for controlling power converters.

The book continues with numerical results obtained in simulations for the three main topics, which demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposals. Finally, the experimental results of a case study, carried out in the framework of the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) at CERN, are reported. To meet CLIC requirements the two systems were designed to be ultra-low noise and are demonstrated to be repeatable in the order of few tens of parts per million (ppm).
