In this paper, the power electronics for a sulfur plasma lamp is presented. The plasma is obtained by heating the sulfur using microwaves generated by a magnetron. A custom high voltage (5 kV) power supply has been developed to supply the magnetron. To protect the bulb from melting, a suitable modulation technique has been implemented.
