The operating characteristics of traveling wave direct energy converter, which is expected to be used in an advanced fusion, are discussed in the case of broad energy band flux based on the deceleration theory. Comparison of distributions in phase space between different relative phase differences shows a good agreement with the theory. The examination by narrow energy band flux roughly explained that the observed low energy component corresponded to the incident ions around the best matching energy of the decelerator.
