For many applications of gyrodevices, it is extremely important to increase their overall efficiency and reduce the power consumption. Therefore, at present, there are many gyrotrons operating with depressed collectors. These gyrotrons and their depressed collectors are typically designed with the use of available numerical codes. This paper is devoted to the analysis of the energy recuperation in gyrotrons, which is performed with the use of the Hamiltonian formalism. Such consideration gives some insight into the physics of gyrodevices and can be useful for estimating the benefits from utilizing depressed collectors. Both single-cavity gyromonotrons and multicavity gyrodevices in which the last cavity is excited by a prebunched beam are analyzed. Special attention is paid to a three-cavity, frequency-quadrupling gyrodevice.
