This paper describes an analog computer representation of the ring magnet power supply system of the Zero Gradient Synchrotron. Included in this representation are detailed simulations of a salient pole synchronous generator with a rectifier exciter, the generator voltage regulator, the twelve phase rectifier with grid control, and the ring magnet load. The performance predicted by the computer model is compared with test oscillograms. The satisfactory correlation realized demonstrates the accuracy of the simulation and the utility of the computer in studying similar systems.
