  An S-band Traveling wave linear accelerator with an RF input peak power level up to 2.5 MW, for accelerating 1 mA beam of electron up to 15 MeV, is under construction in Iran. This article presents design procedure of a prebuncher for this accelerator. One standing-cavity type prebuncher is required for bunching electron beam for this accelerator. The intended prebuncher is driven by a coaxial line at 2 kW and operated at the same frequency of the other parts of the accelerator. The magnetic coupling applied has been applied for power coupling to the prebuncher cavity. The optimum dimensions of the prebuncher were obtained by using 2D and 3D electromagnetic codes in the frequency domain. Prebuncher cavity consists of a copper body and coupling loop feed.
