Abstract

The Acceleration Grid Power Supply (AGPS) is a system devoted to supply the acceleration grids of the MITICA experiment, the full scale prototype of the ITER Neutral Beam Injector (NBI), being built in Padova (Italy) to test the NBI in advance of the operation in ITER. The procurement of the AGPS is split in two parts: the low voltage conversion system, namely the AGPS-Conversion System (AGPS-CS,) being procured by the European domestic agency, and the high voltage DC Generators (AGPS-DCG), being procured by the Japanese domestic agency. After the contract award, in late 2015, the executive design phase of the AGPS-CS has been finalized. The paper will present the final design of the AGPS-CS and will discuss the main choices in particular concerning the protection from internal faults of the inverters.
