  abstract     = {{At the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), we are considering various topologies to replace obsolete charging supplies and capacitor banks that provide high-voltage direct-current (DC) power to the 44, 805-MHz klystron modulators that drive the LANSCE Coupled Cavity Linac (CCL). Among the possible replacement topologies is the High Voltage Converter Modulator (HVCM), originally designed at LANSCE for use at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS), to be used as a pulsed high-voltage power supply for klystron-based RF transmitters. The HVCM topology uses high frequency transformers with resonant LC networks for efficient energy conversion and a frequency dependent gain, which permits the use of frequency modulation as a control variable to afford pulse flattening and excellent regulation as demonstrated at SNS. A mathematical analysis is presented that links the converter resonant tank components to the frequency dependent output behavior of the converter modulator.}},
