A 100-MeV Compact Electron Accelerator scheme based on the Tsinghua X-band (11.424 GHz) High Power Test stand (TPot-X) was proposed for Very High Energy Electron (VHEE) radiotherapy. A pulse compressor with correction cavity chain was designed to compress the 50 MW, 1500 ns microwave pulse from the X-band klystron to 120 MW, 300 ns. The acceleration system consists of 3 parts, a buncher which bunches and boosts the electron from a thermionic cathode gun to 8 MeV, and two accelerating structure
