The electron beam is one of the main components in traveling-wave tubes (TWTs). A study on the influence of the parameters related to the electron beam on small-signal gain of TWTs is proposed. In particular, the effect of the variations of electron-beam voltage, the perveance of the electron gun, and electron beam radius are investigated. A five-section TWT was considered in the study.
