Microtron electron accelerators generally show a 50% reduction of the injected beam in the first orbits. A modification of the race-track magnet system is proposed in this paper to reduce the beam losses. Calculations of the phases of electrons at the microwave cavity yield exact shapes of different orbits required for resonance in a split magnet system. Introduction of small sector magnets in the field-free space provides a feasible method for obtaining the calculated orbit shapes.
