The Brookhaven AGS Main Magnet Power Supply (MMPS) is a thyristor control supply rated at 5500 Amps, ±9000 Volts. The peak magnet power is 50 MWatts. The power supply is fed from a motor/generator manufactured by Siemens. The generator is 3 phase 7500 Volts rated at 50 MVA. The peak power requirements come from the stored energy in the rotor of the motor/generator. The motor generator is about 45 years old and Siemens is not manufacturing similar machines in the future. We are therefore investigating different ways of storing energy for future AGS MMPS operation. This paper will present simulations of a power supply where energy is stored in capacitor banks. Two dc to dc converters will be presented. The switching elements would be IGCT's made by ABB. The simulation program used is called PSIM Version 6.1. The control system of the power supply will also be presented. The average power from the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) into the power supply will be kept constant during the pulsing of the magnets at ±50 MW. The reactive power will also be kept constant below 1.5 MVAR. Waveforms will be presented.
