The GOL-3 Multiple Mirror Trap is an 11-m-long solenoid with an axially-periodical (corrugated) magnetic field. In the basic operation regime, the solenoid consists of 52 magnetic corrugation cells with Bmax/Bmin = 4.8/3.2 T. Deuterium plasma of 1020÷1022 m-3 density is heated up to ~ 2 keV ion temperatures (at ~1021 m-3 density and τE~1 ms) by a high power relativistic electron beam. The new source of intense long-pulse electron beam with a plasma cathode was developed at BINP for the experiments on a quasi-stationary beam injection in GOL-3. The injector was installed in the end tank of GOL-3 multiple mirror trap, and tested to produce 20 MW, 100 keV electron beam with a sub-ms pulse duration. The new data will be presented including that on electron beam transport, on the plasma stabilization by controlled both the radial current profile and the plasma potential.
