Due to the circuit topology of ramping power supplies used in the APS Booster ring, they are unable to follow the linear current ramp to the desired accuracy of 0.1%. In addition, those supplies are also sensitive to AC line perturbation. To improve the performance, a linear regulator using paralleled MOSFET devices in series with the power supply is proposed. The control algorithm uses a real-time current feedback loop to force the MOSFETs to work in the linear operation mode. By using this linear MOSFET regulator, the MOSFETs' drain to source voltage, and hence the voltage imposed on magnets can be regulated very quickly. As a result, the regulation of the magnet current can be improved significantly. So far the simulation results show that with the linear regulator the current regulation can be improved to better than 0.1%. Because of the high bandwidth of the linear regulator, it can reduce the harmonic content in the output current as well as the noises due to the AC line disturbance. A sextupole power supply has been set up to verify the proposed topology. This paper discusses the circuit topology, the regulation algorithm, and the experiment results.
