This report describes requirements for phase and power control in the high-power magnetron transmitters allowing the suppression of parasitic phase and amplitude modulations in the Superconducting RF (SRF) cavities of accelerators. The modulations are caused by microphonics, Lorentz Force detuning (LFD), dynamic tuning errors, beam loading, etc. The methods of control in magnetron transmitters allowing the required dynamic phase and power management of magnetrons based on theory of the charge drift in magnetrons and results of the experimental study of the control are considered and discussed.
