A detailed method of conditioning and testing of the 3MW S-Band pulse tunable magnetron has been discussed. As the magnetron prototypes developed are not suitable for direct operation and use in the system, certain procedures are followed to make them rugged enough to operate at the full specifications. The cathode used is a triple carbonate oxide coated and application of required voltage at the initial level may cause inefficient emission from the cathode and even damage of cathode, resulting in the end of tube life. Also the vacuum level is to be maintained inside the tubes and sufficient time is required to pump out the emitted gases from the different surfaces inside the tubes due to heating of the surfaces by electron bombardment or resistive heating.
