A detailed study of the operational capabilities of the W7-X/1MW gyrotron operated at 126GHz/TE26,7 is presented. This study is associated with the foreseen upgrade of TCV in which it is planned to add to the present EC system 3MW of additional RF power bringing the total EC-power to 7.5MW. This study is extended to a possible operation of the gyrotron at the ITER relevant frequency of 168GHz in the TE35,9 mode without implementing any further modification neither in the gyrotron nor in the gyrotron superconducting magnet.
